Empathy: The ability to understand and share the feelings of another.
Corporate Empathy is the title of a book I began working on in December and am working hard to complete prior to this coming Wednesday. I have been given the opportunity to place a signed final version in a time capsule in the safe below the historic St. Paul AME Church that serves as the community center for Metro 510 apartments where I live. The time capsule will be kept there for 25 years. I love the urban neighborhood that has become my home on the north end of downtown Tampa and look forward to being here to open it in 25 years.
It seems fitting to place a copy in the time capsule here since it was one month to the day following my move in that the idea solidified as a document full of notes and ideas that have now become a persuasive argument for empowering corporations to embrace the technology age to improve the lives of the people they serve.
I will be self publishing the book through Create Space while also considering a traditionally published version if the opportunity presents itself. I will also be following up with articles that will suggest simple logical solutions to common issues related to the ideas set out in the book.
After reading Seth Godin’s blog post, This might work (my new book), where he announced a Kick Starter project to launch his newest book I have decided that with under a week to go I would provide a way for my closest personal and business friends to show support for this idea early and help me to spread a message I feel will resonate well with many of you. To advance purchase a signed copy of the book you can use the PayPal purchase links below.
To get an idea of what this is all about I have provided a sample that includes the introduction and part of the prologue.

Awesome! Can’t wait to pick it up and read. Will it be available for reading on ipad as well?
Laurel / Alison, Sorry I just saw these comments. I think I got hit with a bunch of Facebook ones and missed them.
Thanks Laurel for the support, the book is being reviewed by Amazon and once I have the proof to approve I will order books and have a book signing and launch party.
Alison, the Kindle version should be available sometime tomorrow, 9/13 and based on how that goes I am going to look into getting it on iBooks. I believe you can get the Kindle App for your iPad though. Since you pre-order though just email me and I will get you the latest version while we wait for the printed one. 😉
