This week I had one of the most eye-opening, exhilarating, joyful experiences of my life: I teamed with a marvelous group of people to make good TV. Maybe even great TV.
We were in Wixom, Michigan, at Detroit Public Television's impressive state-of-the-art HD TV studio. I got to meet the group of smart, collaborative, flexible women that I'd been partnering with for months via phone and email - Diane Bliss, Jamie Westrick, Josette Marano, Rosalind Kimbrough and Aimee Longato. And then I got to work with a whole new group of smart, collaborative people - Alex, Larry, Greg, Tammy, Todd, Leo, Fred (both Freds), Matt, Brian, Lisa...
And at the end of two days of (for me) learning and huge fun for all: voila - television!
Being Strategic with Erika Andersen will air first in Detroit on WTVS, Channel 56 on June 6th at 10:30am, and then starting in August, it will be airing nationally.
It's an hour-long program of me with a live studio audience, teaching them the Being Strategic process and skills, and helping them start to apply it to a real challenge in their lives. The DPTV folks built a great set, pulled together an enthusiastic studio audience, and were consummate professionals throughout.
If you don't find it being shown on your local public television station, you're more than welcome to call them and tell them you need to see it!
