Several members of our team at Weaving Influence (myself included) have taken a few days off this week to celebrate Christmas. I hope that you also found time to unplug and spend time with your loved ones… or perhaps with your nose in a new book.

As you can imagine, there are always new books floating around our home offices, just waiting for the next book launch. Our 2014 calendars are filling up with several exciting ones, including a launch next month for the authors who are the focus of today’s Featured on Friday spot!

Meet Beverly Kaye and Sharon Jordan-Evans

Prior to working with Weaving Influence I hadn’t exactly run in any leadership circles, so the first time I heard of Beverly Kaye was in mid-2012, when I had the honor of working on the launch of Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go, co-authored by Beverly and Julie Winkle Giulioni. Having enjoyed their book so much, I was quite excited when we got the opportunity to assist with the launch of the 5th edition of Love ‘Em or Lose ‘Em by co-authors Bev and Sharon.

Beverly Kaye has had a lifetime of experience working in career development, employee engagement, and mentoring. She’s received honors and awards, gives engaging keynotes, and is regularly quoted in the national media. Sharon is equally accomplished, noted as a pioneer in the fields of employee retention and engagement. A prominent speaker and professional certified coach, Sharon is a ready resource for media outlets.

Together, this dynamic duo are a powerhouse of career development and employee engagement knowledge. But do you want to know the best part? They are an absolute delight to work with, even though their credentials give them every right to tell me to deal with their assistants. I can’t wait for their launch!
