First Come, First Served

Blending Leadership was published almost one year ago by the good people at Wiley Jossey-Bass. Since then, we’ve talked about the book all over the world, partnered with Global Online Academy and Laussane Learning Institute, appeared on almost a dozen podcasts, and even appeared on television. To celebrate the one year anniversary of the book, and all of the wonderful colleagues we have met as a result of our book’s success, Reshan and I are booking 5 digital meet-ups with leadership teams (3 or more people) to talk with them about their reactions to the book.  These sessions will last for about an hour, be conducted via Zoom, and must take place in June, July, or August.  First come, first served.  Contact me by adding a comment to this post or via twitter: @sjvalentine.  Thanks for the support and for making year one of Blending Leadership much better than we ever dreamed it could be.


Never Doubt a Scientist

While straightening up the house, I found a sign hanging in my daughter’s room.  This was one of those moments where I realized that her education is unfolding exactly as it should be — thanks to her teachers and school environment, she’s developing beliefs and mindsets that will be utterly foundational for her as she begins to add layers of skill, content, and insight.  And it sounds as if, should she pursue science, she might just be stubborn enough to succeed. “Never doubt a scientist because they never give up.”
