In conversation with Steve Z, he wondered whether another book was the best way to promote my writing. He says my stories about Lenette and me are very personal, so only those who know us both would have an interest. I wonder if this is so, hence this essay.
I hope my writing conveys a philosophy. A way of living with others, and lessons that might influence and teach. These are the same pragmatic ideas I brought to leaders and their organizations.
I taught them ways of leadership, dialogue, and the concept that relationships needed to be as equal as possible. These offered value to those in the workplace, allowing people to find safety, regard, and respect in their work relationships.
Throughout my stories is my philosophy about what environments and relationships should be. This brings me to the point: Are my writings more about Lenette and me than about that which we taught? We did not knowingly choose to be “role models,” but we were and are.
Your feedback on whether a book or the blog is more appropriate for my essays will help us decide. Sy
