Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/08/2021 -- Ken will share an inside look at his early days on the East coast (earning bachelors, masters and doctorate degrees in unexpected fashion), the immense impact of both his parents, and his early leadership experiences.

Author or co-author of 65 books selling over 21 million copies, including Raving Fans, Refire! Don't Retire and blockbuster The One Minute Manager, Ken reflects on some of his 63 co-authors and what he loves as much as ever about collaborating on books and pearls of wisdom he's learned. He inspires all to be the best version of themselves.

About Say It Skillfully®
The show is about helping people to be who they are and skillfully say what needs to be said, i.e., to interact positively and productively, even if you need to disagree with your boss, give tough feedback or deliver bad news. Hearing all voices, including these unpopular ones, is critical for groups of people to create a "shared reality"—i.e., be on the same page. This is essential to make the best decisions execute with speed and achieve outstanding outcomes. The relationship dimension –the "people" issues–are the biggest challenge of work. Say It Skillfully® provides essential learning that is missing from most training, so that people can embrace their differences and do their best work, together.

At the core of saying it skillfully is being grounded in oneself—being real. Molly hosts guests who are willing to share the ups, downs, twists and turns in their journeys to finding their own truth north, as role models for listeners to appreciate that it is the struggles that most shape who we are.
