ENCORE: Author Kelly O’Connor McNees; “The Bullseye Principle” with G. Riley Mills

August 01, 2019
 

We revisit a conversation with Chicago author Kelly O’Connor McNees. Her novel, "Undiscovered Country," is a work of historical fiction about first Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and her relationship with journalist Lorena Hickok. And, Gary Mills joins us to talk about the art of communication.

The novel might be a fictionalized account, but both Roosevelt and Hickok had a real impact on American history - particularly as the New Deal was being developed. Kelly joined the show last year to tell us a little more about what life was like before programs like Social Security were created.

Does the idea of getting up and talking in front of a group of people fill you with dread? We’re revisiting our conversation last summer with author and communication expert, Gary Mills. Mills is the co-founder of Pinnacle Performance Company, a global communication skills firm based in Chicago. His book is called "The Bullseye Principal: Mastering Intention-Based Communication to Collaborate, Execute, and Succeed."
