You know how I am always harping on learning as much as you can while still in your corporate job to prepare you for entrepreneurship? Here is a great opportunity to do just that and it won’t cost you a cent.
Professor Srikumar Rao is an accomplished, wise, supportive and delightful man who teaches a course on creativity and personal mastery at the Columbia Business School and London Business School. (He will be teaching it at UC Berkeley as well, and the course oversubscribed the 250 slots even before the invitation was mailed out). CNN.com just wrote about him yesterday. I met Professor Rao through my blog, and he has become a trusted mentor, adviser and friend. When I spoke to him on the phone the first time, I felt a huge smile spread across my face at his positive and enthusiastic demeanor, and we discussed everything from business to spiritual practices around the world.
Tomorrow, Professor Rao will be conducting a one-hour free teleclass, sponsored by Leading News, the leadership newsletter published by Marshall Goldsmith and Patricia Wheeler.
Here are the details:
Join executive coach Patricia Wheeler of Leading News (LeadingNews.org) and The Levin Group (TheLevinGroup.com) for a TeleForum on September 15th at noon Eastern.
Please join Patricia and her guest Dr. Srikumar Rao for a discussion focused on Creating Your Own Success. Dr. Rao is a popular professor at the London School of Business and the Columbia School of Business. His course "Creativity and Personal Mastery" is always a sellout, and is perhaps the only single course in the world with its own active worldwide alumni association. His recently published book is titled, "Are You Ready to Succeed?"
During this 60-minute conference call we will be discussing the three points below plus fielding your specific questions:
1. Handling a difficult boss…..masterfully
2. A revolutionary strategy for effective networking
3. How to create positive, lasting change in an unpredictable world
