My guest this week, Susan Stiffelman, is a parenting expert. She started her career as a teacher and a therapist. In her books, Parenting with Presence and Parenting without Power Struggles she acknowledges that parents are transforming and growing along with their children. She speaks to large organizations, like Google, and was the parenting expert for AOL and the Huffington Post for many years. She has been featured on the Today show and partners with other experts and authors in her online summits and programs.
My book, Bring Your Whole Self to Work: How Vulnerability Unlocks Creativity, Connection and Performance comes out officially May 1, 2018, but you can pre-order it now and receive special audio bonuses. And, you can join me on May 5th for a live book launch at the Book Passage in Corte Madera at 7 pm.
