Beginning a week from today: Monday, May 7, I’ll be running a 10-day series of interviews with leaders – asking each the same short series of questions – on The Daily Blur. You’ll see answers and insights to one question per day.
Then … the fun stuff starts …
I’m going to turn all that great leadership insight – along with some other content – into an eBook with all profits going to help my first mentor and leader, Bruce Welker, who’s recovering from a stroke.
If you and/or some people you know lead others, would you be willing to answer these questions or pass them along by Sunday, May 6th?
Bruce means a lot to me. He’s a great man and father and leader. He’s doing very well in his recovery and therapy, but the bills are huge, and this is the best way I know to help him, plus help people gain valuable insight about leadership from people who walk the walk.
Simply email me your answers and a bit about yourself. I really appreciate it! Have a great day.
