Punk Rock HR Episode 104:
Have you ever wanted to do something, but just kept getting in your way over and over again? Yeah, me too. This week, I share my experience with writing my upcoming book, “Betting on You: How to Put Yourself First (Finally) And Take Control of Your Career,” and how one simple statement by a colleague changed my outlook on writing, completely. Tune into to get a brief glimpse into what my book is about.
In this episode you’ll hear:
- My early ambitions of being a writer and some of my writing failures
- The one thing a colleague said to me that changed the trajectory of my writing, completely
- What you can expect from my book, including who it is for and how it can help
WHAT IS THE NAME OF YOUR NEXT BOOK, AND HOW CAN I GET UPDATES ON ITS RELEASE?
My next book is, Betting on You: How to Put Yourself First (Finally) And Take Control of Your Career. My weekly newsletter offers pragmatic insights on your job and will soon have book updates too. I hope you sign up and find it helpful!
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM YOUR NEXT BOOK?
In my next book, I offer insights and tactical advice on how to look for work realistically and practically. I also talk about how to navigate tricky office politics and how to be your own HR professional when your human resources department lets you down. My personal story is woven throughout the book. While sharing my life can be hard, I’ve come to see how my life informs my practice, as a keynote speaker, as a coach and as an HR consultant. Although I continue to still get in my way, I’ve learned a few things on my journey. So my tone is less like a cheesy motivational speaker and more like a big sister who tells it like it is.
