Pink Zone 2013, the cancer fundraiser coordinated each year by the Gannon women's basketball team. I will sign copies of my book Hire Like You Just Beat Cancer with $5 from each sale being donated to the American Cancer Society.
Here's some background on the book: When I was a young manager, I thought I understood the importance of
hiring top-notch people. Then, at age 32, I got cancer. Being forced to
step away from my co-workers for an extended period of time (with one of
the options being stepping away forever) made me realize that the
people you hire truly make or break your business. In Hire Like You Just Beat Cancer, you’ll read short, easy-to-digest chapters filled with
detailed examples and time-tested best practices that you can implement
immediately at your organization. The lessons I learned when cancer
knocked me down helped build me up as a hiring manager, and I apply
those lessons aggressively every time I interview a potential employee.
I'm looking forward to the book signing and the games. Go Knights!
