This Saturday, I’m teaching a workshop on How to Write and Publish a Book to Support Your Mission and Work
at Harvard Medical School’s CME course on Career Advancement and Leadership Skills for Women in Healthcare.
One of the questions I’ll be asking participants in my book writing and publishing workshop is, “What’s your big picture? What’s your vision for writing a book?”
Reasons for writing a book and becoming a published author abound, but in this workshop we’ll focus on four areas:
- Career Building
- Organizational Impact
- Impact Beyond One’s Organization
- Personal Vision
Here are a few quotes about writing a book and becoming a published author from my slides for Saturday’s workshop:
“Elisabeth Rosenthal told an interviewer her goal was to ‘start a very loud conversation’ that will be ‘difficult politically to ignore.’”
“In a crowded field, it’s difficult to differentiate yourself on paper.
My book differentiates me from other healthcare executives.”
– Dotty Bollinger, author of The Secret Sauce
Founder and CEO of Integrity Healthcare Advisors (IHA)
Managing Partner, GPB Capital
“As a published author, I now reach a global audience of influential people.”
- Dr. Randy Kamen, author of Behind the Therapy Door
What are some of your reasons and your vision for writing a book? What’s the big picture you have in mind for your book? Please share below. I love hearing from readers and being inspired by you!
