This week focus on:
1. Get proximate to the issue
2. Change your narrative
3. Stay hopeful
4. Commit to doing the right thing
On April 19, 2016, Bryan Stevenson, the author of Just Mercy, spoke at Laxson Auditorium on the California State University, Chico campus. Just Mercy is the book in common for Chico State and Butte College, as well as the community at large.
This presesentation was simulcast to Redding and Grass Valley, as well as being live-streamed the next day from Butte College Main Campus.
I am not an affiliate of Bryan Stevenson or his book, Just Mercy, but I am happy to share his story of terrific leadership and recommend his book.
From the program notes: "Bryan Stevenson is the founder and Executive Director of the Equal Justice Initiative and one of the most acclaimed and respected lawyers in the nation. His memoir, Just Mercy, is the story of a young lawyer fighting on the front lines of a country in thrall to extreme punishments and careless justice. It is an inspiring story of unbreakable humanity in the most desperate circumstances, and a powerful indictment of our broken justice system and the twisted values that allow it to continue."
The closing music for this podcast is from the MTV Unplugged version of Baby Face's, "Change the World".
My focus is training front line employees, supervisors, and managers so they can reach their highest potential in their careers. I also taught college level Business Communication and Employee Readiness courses for 15 years. Employees and students tell me my courses change their lives for the better, and my evaluations consistently rate me as an engaged and motivational speaker. I decided to produce a podcast in the effort to support a broader audience of people in higher levels of job satisfaction and productivity, as well as encourage people to find jobs for which they are a good fit.
If you know anyone getting ready to start college, or even at a crossroads in life trying to put things back together in a positive way, may I encourage you to give them my book, From Average Student to Academic Rock Star? This is my foundational college orientation available on Amazon in paperback. Set up like a workbook with action steps, this information has helped thousands of people get their goals on track. Some readers are purchasing it as a gift, and then deciding to keep it for themselves because of the life lessons addressed in the book. Check it out on Amazon!
