Event Details

Join us and our friends at Back Cove Books at Mechanics’ Hall for an evening of celebration with Seth Rigoletti, author of Into the Wolf. Seth will be joined in conversation and storytelling with friend and It’s Not Personal co-host, Ken Grady, CIO of IDEXX.

About the book:

The people you’ll meet in Into the Wolf are trying to grow and be more effective in their work and life. Each of their stories offers specific tools and cogent insights to help readers become more effective leaders.

The title— “Into the Wolf”— comes from the Italian expression for good luck: in bocca al lupo or “into the mouth of the wolf.” In each of us is something that we are afraid to face. This book asks us to make friends with our own “wolves:” those fears that keep us locked in habits of passive-aggressiveness, self-doubt, and avoidance. It is an invitation to have the courage to trust yourself and find a more authentic and effective way to be in the world.

Seth Rigoletti is a leadership and communication coach with over 10 years experience working with CEOs, politicians, scientists, authors and doctors to help them not only communicate more clearly but also more authentically. A former actor and teacher, Seth’s approach to coaching is to help his clients cut through the noise and confusion and become better communicators by showing them how to connect who they are to the message they need to deliver. Seth focuses on using personal growth as a tool for growing one’s influence and managing change. Using an intuitive style and a variety of acting-based techniques, Seth is able to guide people away from old patterns and into a new, more genuine, confident and resonant style of communication.

Ken Grady serves as Vice President & global CIO for IDEXX Laboratories, the global leader in diagnostics and technology solutions for animal health, water & milk quality. Bringing more than 20 years of life sciences and technology leadership, Ken now leads an worldwide organization supporting new product launches, global distribution and support of some of the most innovative and critical diagnostic capabilities in the market protecting our food and water supply chains, and the health and well being of people and their companion animals.

About Mechanics’ Hall:

Mechanics’ Hall was founded in 1815 by the Maine Charitable Mechanic Association to support Maine’s creative community: blacksmiths, coopers, artists, innovators, and creators. Between 1857 and 1859, they built Mechanics’ Hall in Portland – a communal gathering space with a lending library at its center. Today, our organization celebrates that rich history through literary arts programs, music, performance, and more while working to restore our landmark building as a rich cultural resource.
