Ask Me About My Book! And Other Topics


Thanks to my book coach Cathy Fyock for the “Ask Me About My Book” coffee mug and for the coaching she's provided along the way for The Mistakes That Make Us: Cultivating a Culture of Learning and Innovation.

She's also provided me a button that she encourages authors to wear that says, “Ask Me About My Book,” and she also created a laptop sticker.

In the photo, I'm holding a mocked up book, which should be available in June. The Kindle version is now available for pre-order.

Would you like to ask me anything about my book?

Do you have any questions for me about navigating the choices between using a traditional publisher and so-called “self publishing?” I plan on writing a blog post about the pros and cons of working with a traditional publisher…

Do you have questions about learning from mistakes? Culture change? Psychological safety? Lean?

When I shared this on LinkedIn, Jamie Flinchbaugh asked:

Should you read it straight through or is it just as useful by jumping around?

My reply:

Good question. I think straight through. But it was hard to put a bunch of interconnected concepts into a linear flow. Or hard to figure out “what's the right flow?”
