Brand New Book for September/October: “Story-Driven,” by Bernadette Jiwa.
Amazon Description of the Book:
“When you have something to say, you don’t need to shout. Bernadette Jiwa helps us learn how to create the change we seek to make in the world,” Seth Godin.
Every one of us—regardless of where we were born, how we were brought up, how many setbacks we’ve endured or privileges we’ve been afforded—has been conditioned to compete to win. Ironically, the people who create fulfilling lives and careers—the ones we respect, admire and try to emulate—choose an alternative path to success. They have a powerful sense of identity. They don’t worry about differentiating themselves from the competition or obsess about telling the right story. They tell the real story instead. Successful organizations and the people who create, build, and lead them don’t feel the need to compete, because they know who they are and they’re not afraid to show us.
How about you?
What do you stand for?
Where are you headed and why?
What’s been the making of you?
What will make your career or company great?
You must be able to answer these questions if you want to build a great company, a thriving entrepreneurial venture, or a fulfilling career. Whether you’re an individual or you’re representing an organization or a movement, a city or a country, Story-Driven gives you a framework to help you consistently articulate, live and lead with your story. This book is about how to stop competing and start succeeding by being who you are, so you can do work you’re proud of and create the future you want to see.
After a great start to The Learning Community in the Fall of 2019 and kick-off to 2020, we are excited to continue our meetings into June and July despite the COVID-19 crisis. It is not ideal to miss out on the benefits of being present in-person. But, we believe that we can still experience the power of community and conversation together via a Zoom call.
If you have never experienced a Book Club+ like our Learning Community, now may be the most ideal time ever to do so.
This Learning Community is divided into two months for each book:
Month 1 introduces a new book for our group to discuss takeaways and top principles.
Month 2 seeks to dig deeper into the book’s practical applications and pushes everyone to put things into action. And, bring your book recommendation for next month.
The Vision and Goal
The vision and goal of the learning club will be the discussion of a business or personal development book over a two month period of time. The first month read a book and then meet as a group to discuss it. Practical applications of the content and how we will implement key concepts into our daily lives will be our focus. The second month is the practical implementation of the key concepts. Members will meet again to discuss what worked and what didn’t with the goal of receiving feedback and perspective that helps take action. At the end of this meeting, members will then present their book recommendation for the next two-month learning cycle. The one receiving the most votes will be the focus for the next two months. The member whose book was selected leads the discussion for the learning period. New learning club members may join in the beginning month of the learning cycle.
