Hood Canal Communications, Our Community Credit Union, and Peninsula Credit Union have teamed up to offer the community a free presentation by international author Shari Storm. Her book “Motherhood is the New MBA: Using Your Parenting Skills to be a Better Boss” has been featured in Time Magazine, Redbook, and on Martha Stewart’s Radio Show.
When it comes to business leadership – sports and war analogies are commonly used. Shari takes a more relatable approach by drawing parallels between the work place and family life. Shari’s ideology is that skills learned as a parent have application in the work place.
The following excerpt from the Introduction of “Motherhood Is the New MBA” concisely summarizes the book and gives you a glimpse in to Shari’s presentation: “Once I recognized the parallels between raising children and managing people, I saw them everywhere. Suddenly, my pediatric books became rife with management advice and my management books contained wisdom for raising children. It all became one big cross-pollination of growth and learning for me. I realized that my training was happening twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Once I realized this, I became more confident in the roles I was playing, both as a mother and as a manager.”
The presentation will be April 10, 2013 from 7:45 am to 9:00 am at the Mason County PUD3 Auditorium. The auditorium is at 2621 E Johns Prairie Road, Shelton. Light refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP by clicking here.
