With the digital version of our book, “Leadership in Wonderland” available on Amazon and with the paperback version recently being listed on Amazon and on our website, www.leadershipinwonderland.com, the tables were turned on us. For once, Susan, who usually does interviewing on behalf of her clients, became the focal point of an interview herself, when the members of the AESC, the Association of Executive Search Consultants, Global Marketing and Communications department, became curious about the book. How did the book come about? What’s so important about embracing change? Can leadership groups benefit from reading and discussing this together? All this would be answered in a question and answer. That Q&A was published in the AESC’s Bluesteps blog on January 5, 2017. You can read it at: https://www.bluesteps.com/blog/leadership-wonderland or on our blog at www.leadershipinwonderland.com

After speaking with experienced professionals and learning there are a lot of thoughts floating in and out of conversation about non-compete agreements that just aren’t true, Susan was given a chance to write a blog for the retained search association’s professional organization, the AESC (www.aesc.org) and a database it sponsors, BlueSteps. She thought it was the perfect topic to cover to clear up some of the misinformation. And with the help of a fantastically knowledgeable labor and employment attorney, James Prusinowski of Trimboli & Prusinowski, she was able to collect and verify the information for the written piece. Want to know if what you were saying or thinking, and what you had previously heard, is or isn’t true? For instance, is a non-compete really only a concern when you are considering a new position with a new employer? Please read on: https://www.bluesteps.com/blog/non-compete-agreement

The article written for this week’s addition of “Woman Around Town” addresses two life changing events: getting married and changing one’s job. The title “Change is Good: Are You The Bride or the Cellphone” incorporates the two topics discussed in the article: planning a wedding while not jeopardizing your job, and, when and why to consider a job change. The wedding topic was part of the week’s special edition devoted to June weddings. The job change topic was a response to a reader who asked, “why interview, if your job isn’t broken”. It includes a list of reasons to change jobs despite the fact that the current job may be adequate. The cellphone is used as an analogy that refers to an individual and their career and is explained in the piece.
