The Take Action Challenge series for the month of May will resume tomorrow.
In the meantime, I wanted to let readers know that Ed Brenegar has posted his interview with me about stepping back and taking time to rethink a career.
This is a popular topic now, especially with Seth Godin’s new book The Dip being released this month. (What’s a Dip? Think St. John of the Cross’s Dark Night of the Soul for business types.) Like anyone on a path worth taking, I’ve gone through my share of dips and dark nights. And that’s what Ed Brenegar and I talked about. Read it here.
Ed is a columnist for the Asheville Citizen-Times. (This interview was also the subject of his column today – which officially marks the first time I’ve ever landed the Business section of any newspaper.) Ed is also a speaker and consultant in leadership strategy and organizational vision. In my own words — he steps in when things are going bad in a business (or team, or church, or community) and uses practical, spiritual, personal development, and business principles to help the whole wagon get back on course. (He also happens to be a great father to his teenage kids.) We met by blog. And then we met in person here in Asheville.
