Greetings from La Jolla!
Thank you so much for sending me an email response to my post on social media:
FRIENDS — I WANT TO TEACH ALL I KNOW TO ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED – AROUND THE WORLD – AT NO CHARGE. I NEED HELP TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!!! IF YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER TO HELP, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
I have been amazed at the response to my request.
Over 2,700 generous and friendly people have responded!
I sent a follow up email to all the respondents. Please check your spam folder!
Email me News@MarshallGoldsmith.com and let me know how you can help!
To begin with, I want to do free online Zoom sessions for everyone who has responded. Some of you may be very familiar with my material; others may not. I would like to share the basics of what I know with everyone. I will be sending out invitations for these sessions at a later date. If you know others who may want to join us, please invite them as well.
I would also like to recruit volunteers to help me with my mission. I know a lot about very few things. I need lots of help! Some of the support that I need includes:
- Translators – Who can translate materials in as many languages as possible.
- Instructional designers – Who can help convert the content to practical courses that millions of people can use.
- Social media experts – Who can help communicate through social media around the world.
- User experience experts — Who can help participants navigate through content.
- Facilitators – Who can use my content in their training in for-profit or not-for-profit organizations.
- Coaches – Who can use or modify content to help their clients.
- Marketing / brand experts – Who can help package and distribute communications.
- Web experts – Who can help design the website.
- Accessibility experts – Who can ensure that all are available for people who may not be able to see or hear.
- Global diversity experts – Who can ensure that all messages are delivered in a way that respects differences in people around the world.
- Project Managers – Who can help manage this ambitious project!
As I mentioned earlier, my level of expertise is deep, yet narrow. I am certainly not an expert on all of the topics mentioned above. If you know others, with different types of knowledge, who may want to help, please invite them.
Any help that you – or people your recruit – can give to me is appreciated!
No one is being paid for this. This project is a volunteer effort. If this is not a good time in your life to volunteer, please do not. My goal is to help you – not to be a distraction from your mission.
All material in this project will be made available – at no charge – for anyone who may find benefit. You can use it in any way that best fits your needs.
You may also modify the content created that is developed for yourself or your clients. If you need any permission, please just ask me and I will send a note of approval.
It is the intent of this project to be a pilot program for other thought leaders who, like me, have been very blessed in life and want to share their ideas with as many people as they can.
If you are interested, please reply to News@marshallgoldsmith.com with the following information:
- Any role that you would like to play (from the list above or something that I have forgotten).
- Any language that you would like to represent.
- How you want to use this project to help yourself.
- How you want to use this project to help others.
