Well now!! Busy, busy, busy I have been. I have fallen behind yet again in regards to introducing all the wonderful talent on board Ozymandias, as I had promised, but finally I have a few extra moments of precious time to talk about yet another beautiful entity of life that I find amazing. :)
Her name is Kelley Eskridge. She is founder of Humans at Work, and it is an opportunity of a lifetime for those whom want to further their knowledge in the way of management. A sort of training bit, if you will, of what one should be equipped with in the way of relating when managing others. Frankly, I think it should be something that anybody should check out, whether of manager status or not, just because it offers up so much in the way of showing what a human being should want to possess if they want to find the key to maintaining good and healthy relationships with others. It's all about communication, treating others as your equal, and so many other beautiful qualities that one should want to possess in the way of social interactions. If you have time, you can check out "A Leader's Manifesto", an 8 page document of very resourceful information, which I promise, will not be a waste of your time. Kelley herself wrote it. It reads very easy and you come out if it feeling as though you've been somehow embued with the power to change a woman/man's stars.
Kelley is also author of Solitaire, (a finalist for the Nebula, Spectrum and Endeavour awards!!) and novella Dangerous Space, which I am hoping to read very soon, as I've heard nothing but good, good, good about. *Feel free to clink on the link to both Solitaire and Dangerous Space to find out more about these!!*
Currently Kelley is working on making Solitaire into a film adaptation, in which she is handling screenplay revisions, and I am very excited for her about it!!
Kelley was also a vice president of Wizards of the Coast which gives me the gigglies, cause Wizards of the Coast was somewhat of a "household name" for me growing up!!! :)
(For those of you that don't know, Wizards of the Coasts is a publisher of trading card and role-playing games such as Magic, Dungeons and Dragons, and Pokemon.)
So there you have Kelley Eskridge. Feel free to pop by her blog and have a look around!! She is very fun, conversational, and insightful. :)
