Authors from The Respect Effect and Beltway Boys Appear at B&N Book Signing

Legacy Business Cultures is proud to announce that Paul Meshanko, president and CEO, will be sharing the podium at a Barnes & Noble book signing in Rockville, MD on October 29 with author Elliott Smith.

Meshanko will be giving a brief overview on The Respect Effect: Using the science of neuroleadership to inspire a more loyal and productive workplace. This will be followed by Smith providing insights on his book: Beltway Boys: Stephen Strasburg, Bryce Harper, and the Rise of the Nationals.

According to Esther Simmonds, community relations manager for Barnes & Noble, Inc. in Rockville, MD, “We thought this would be a fun and informative venue to highlight two notable authors. The event will start at 7:30 pm with the presentations from Mr. Meshanko and Mr. Smith. There will be a brief time for general questions and then each author will be seated at their table to talk and mingle with our guests plus of course, personally sign their books.”

“While this evening is highlighting two very different books, I think there are some parallels from respect in the workplace and respect on the baseball field,” said Meshanko. “The Washington Nationals’ breakout season had a great deal to do with how the manager lead the talented team to earn their respect and make history.”

As an organizational change expert, Meshanko has studied how the human brain performs in a multitude of work environments—and his conclusion is compelling: People biologically perform at their highest level when treated with respect. Conversely, when employees are subjected to disrespectful behaviors, they typically respond in kind or simply shut down. In The Respect Effect, Meshanko reveals the transformational power of respect in the workplace and will share some of these insights at the book signing.
