Happy New Year! As 2014 starts to unfold, one of the things that I am personally excited about are the number of book launches that are already filling up our schedule.
I love reading, and have since I was a small girl. Over the years, my taste in books has developed, and I enjoy a number of genres and authors. My work with Weaving Influence has broadened my book world a bit more, and has introduced me to people like today’s author (who is also the focus of an upcoming buzz week, January 13 – 17, 2014)…
Meet Catherine Robinson-Walker
Author of Leading Valiantly in Healthcare, Catherine Robinson-Walker is the president of The Leadership Studio, specializing in leadership development, and executive and team coaching in healthcare. She has been working with leaders in the healthcare industry for over 25 years, and is a well known and much sought-after keynote speaker.
Over the last few months, we’ve had the honor of getting to know her as we have worked together on her upcoming buzz week for the book. Her attention to detail and desire for clear communication carry over from book to emails to speaking. While the focus of Leading Valiantly is obviously healthcare, you do not have to work in the healthcare field to learn from the leadership lessons found within – a sure sign of a great book that can be learned from, no matter what your field of work.

Join in the Buzz (January 13 – 17, 2014)
Catherine’s book buzz week is getting this new year started off right! Coming up in a little over a week is the buzz building focus for Leading Valiantly in Healthcare. We’d love to have you join us by sharing these free resources with your online communities. If you’d like to be involved in a more in-depth way, please fill out the form (found HERE) to indicate how you would like to be a part of the launch.
If you know someone who works in the healthcare industry, share the links with them – we think this is a book they will want to know about!
You Tell Me! Do you have a leadership book that deeply impacted you at some point? Is there a book you’re excited about reading in 2014?
Carrie Koens joined the Weaving Influence team in May 2012 and has held a number of roles, including three years as the Book Launch Director (a title she stepped away from in June 2016 in order to focus on the needs of her growing family), and she currently serves the team as a Writer and Consultant. An INTJ with a penchant for culture, book stores, Parisian cafés, Indian curry, British mystery shows, and her passport, you can find her on Twitter @CGKoens.
I read a lot of leadership books, and I did work in health care from 1977 – 1980, but I agree 100% that you do not need to be in healthcare to find value in this book. I’m still reading it but so far have found it clear and perceptive. I’m thoroughly enjoying the read.
Thanks for sharing, Paul! I am glad the book is adding value for you!
Love to hear that feedback, Paul! Thanks for sharing and taking the time to comment. 🙂 Hope your New Year is off to a great start!
