After working three decades for various large, global companies, John Stepper – a self-described “accidental entrepreneur” – began searching for ways to get more out of work and life.
This search is what ultimately led him to create Working Out Loud, an approach to building relationships that helps you achieve a goal by making contributions over time that you make visible to others. Not only does the process increase access to more people, knowledge, and opportunities, but it leads to greater feelings of empowerment, confidence, and motivation as well.
And his book, Working Out Loud: For a Better Career and Life, guides you through the twelve-week mastery program to help you put the approach into practice yourself and then turn that practice into a sustainable habit.
In this episode of the Leading Learning Podcast, Celisa talks with John about the concept of working out loud including its five basic elements, ways it benefits participants, and related common barriers. They also discuss how to set the stage for successfully working out loud and ways to structure the working out loud experience through Working Out Loud circles.
