Belief, Hope and Generosity in the Workplace: Hiring Individuals in Recovery

Wednesday October 1, 2014: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room

This event will be recorded

Ari Weinzweig believes that a key aspect of managing ourselves is acknowledging the power of belief - and how much, whether we realize it or not, our beliefs impact our lives and our futures.

In this talk, the CEO and co-founding partner of Zingerman's Community of Businesses will take a look at how our beliefs play out in our day to day workplace experiences and how we and our workplaces are impacted by our beliefs. Ari will discuss how our beliefs about ourselves, organization, coworkers, and our boss, affect the work that we do. And also how, wittingly or unwittingly, we go to great lengths to reinforce our beliefs.

Weinzweig has been distilling the lessons learned from that journey into a series of what will eventually be 6 books. The third, and most recent of the Zingerman’s Guide to Good Leading series, "A Lapsed Anarchist's Approach to Managing Ourselves," turns inwards and examines the impact that our selves have on our businesses.

This event includes a book signing and books will be for sale.

This lecture is in partnership with U-M Council for Disability Concerns 2014 Investing in Ability Week theme Addiction as Disability. This event was originally scheduled for the Downtown Library Multi-Purpose Room and has been relocated to the 4th floor of the Downtown Library.

Participants will learn how to recognize suicidal thinking, reach out and offer support to others contemplating suicide, obtain help when suicidal thoughts are present, and access local and national suicide prevention and intervention resources.
