Treating People Well: The Extraordinary Power of Civility at Work and in Life by Lea Berman and Jeremy Bernard is being released this week!
Former White House social secretaries Lea Berman, who worked for George and Laura Bush, and Jeremy Bernard, who worked for Michelle and Barack Obama, have written an entertaining and uniquely practical guide to personal and professional success in modern life. Their daily experiences at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue taught them valuable lessons about how to work productively with people from different walks of life and points of view. These Washington insiders share what they’ve learned through first person examples of their own glamorous (and sometimes harrowing) moments with celebrities, foreign leaders and that most unpredictable of animals—the American politician.

We’re so grateful to Ed Henry and Fox News for recently sharing the Dog Tag Bakery story. Happy New Year!
There was a wonderful profile piece about Dog Tag Inc. in yesterday’s Washington Post:
For (Tamara) Stewart, 32, the fellowship program has been a comprehensive course in business as she gets ready for the transition to civilian life after nine years with the Army. Over the weeks, the fellows had worked through an intensive curriculum that covered such topics as management, accounting and communications. They had also gotten on-the-job experience throughout different areas of the nonprofit, rotating through operations and strategy, finance, fundraising, as well as the hands-on bakery operation up front.
Now, Stewart aspires to open a boutique restaurant. And she loved learning about fundraising so much that she wants to volunteer on the fundraising committee at The Dwelling Place, a nonprofit based in Gaithersburg, Md., that provides transitional housing for the homeless.
“It’s just opened my eyes to things that I like, and things that I thought I liked, but didn’t,” said Stewart, who now works as a paralegal at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.
I’m very proud of the work being done at Dog Tag Inc.
Veterans, thank you for your service.
