Inspirational Book Club
Tuesday March 28, 2017
7:30 PM until 8:45 PM
This book club will meet on Tuesday, April 4th due to the need to reschedule the Community Read Discussion because of the snow storm on March 14th.
The Inspirational Book Club meets to discuss Originals: how non-conformists move the world by Adam Grant.
Description: Using surprising studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports, and entertainment, Grant explores how to recognize a good idea, speak up without getting silenced, build a coalition of allies, choose the right time to act, and manage fear and doubt; how parents and teachers can nurture originality in children; and how leaders can build cultures that welcome dissent. Learn from an entrepreneur who pitches his start-ups by highlighting the reasons not to invest, a woman at Apple who challenged Steve Jobs from three levels below, an analyst who overturned the rule of secrecy at the CIA, a billionaire financial wizard who fires employees for failing to criticize him, and a TV executive who didn’t even work in comedy but saved Seinfeld from the cutting-room floor. The payoff is a set of groundbreaking insights about rejecting conformity and improving the status quo.
