Lifelong learning is no stranger to Sandi Klein. Sandi Klein is committed to exploring creativity & women leaders. This is NOT a new passion for her because she has lived it. She IS one of those creative women leaders that she talks about! Her interviews are thoughtful learning journeys speaking leader-to-leader about our collective lessons learned. She does not provide her questions ahead of time and does her interviews virtually. Simply put, she keeps it “real.” I’ve experienced her “reality” first hand in our recent interview. Together we lived the learning. In our interview one of the interesting issues that we explored is that some of the most passionate leaders I’ve met, who are committed to the women leaders in their firms, are men. I am honored to be able to think out loud with her in this week’s learning journey. She taught me a lot & I’m the college professor!
So join us and learn with me. Hear how my 20+ yrs of business & management experience took me from government to private sector on Tuesday July 7th at 10am on www.sandikleinshow.com.
The interview will go live on Tuesday, 7/7 at 10:00am on: www.sandikleinshow.com. The interview will also stream on Sunday, 7/12 at 8:30am on: http://www.wfdu.fm/. Subsequently it will be available on iTunes. #empoweringwomen #womeninlaw
