Bring Your Best Self to the Table

Bring Your Best Self to the Table

A book event with Author Anese Cavanaugh

In collaboration with ZingTrain, the Roadhouse is thrilled to welcome author, speaker, and friend of the Roadhouse Anese Cavanaugh for a special event on Tuesday, March 28th at 7 pm, We don’t want you to miss it!

Anese is a strategist and advisor to leaders and organizations around the world, has been interviewed on a variety of television and radio programs and podcasts, and has been featured in publications like Harvard Business Review, Forbes, Inc., and the New York Times. Saying we’re lucky to have her join us feels like an understatement!

As a leading voice on intention, energy, and presence in leadership and culture, she helps people gain greater access to their own secret sauce for showing up more powerfully, collaborating more inspiringly, creating more openly, intuiting more bravely, and leading more joyfully and effectively. Anese says she knows one thing for sure:

People are human; they want to connect, they want to be seen, they want to know they matter, and they want to have impact, and when you give them the space to Show Up with authenticity, intention, energy, presence, and love — magic happens.

We’ve been adapting her innovative energy management into what we do every day in the Zingerman’s Community for over a decade now. Ari wrote about her work in his book A Lapsed Anarchist Approach to Being a Better Leader (part 2 of his Business Book series). Her latest book, Contagious You: Unlock Your Power to Influence, Lead, and Create the Impact You Want, is especially focused on the individual—showing how each of us is contagious in our own way and stressing the importance of leading with intention to achieve positive results. It was released at the end of 2019 (a few short months prior to a time when, admittedly, the title could’ve reflected an entirely different topic!), and, as we come out of the pandemic, finding new ways of working, engaging, and being in the world, we know that the contagious nature of our energy and emotions (and, yes, our health, too) is more important than ever to pay attention to.

At the event (her first book event since the start of the pandemic!), we’ll be serving some of Anese’s favorite Roadhouse appetizers while Ari Weinzweig, Zingerman’s CEO and Co-founder, leads a conversation with Anese. She’ll be sharing stories, insights, and practical ways to implement her life-altering energy work. Some of the Roadhouse staff will chime in as well to talk about how Anese’s teachings have made a meaningful difference in their lives, both at work and in their personal lives.
