Pages: A Book Club for Leaders and Readers

  • Poke the Box: When Was the Last Time You Did Something for the First Time? by Seth Godin | August 26, 11:30am to 1pm
    Presenter: Anna Irwin

    If you’re content waiting for success to find you, you should avoid this book club selection altogether. Why? Because its message dares readers to do something they’re afraid of – even if it’s a small first step. If you’re ready to dive deep into why continual innovation is so critical to thriving in this fast-paced world, make plans to participate in the lively book club discussion on how to connect this book’s principles to your everyday life.

    Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins: How to Use Your Own Stories to Communicate with Power and Impact by Annette Simmons | October 28, 11:30am to 1pm
    Presenter: Anna Irwin

    The right story told at the right time has the power to persuade, promote empathy, and provoke action. Even more, a story explains who you are, what you want, and why it matters – better than any other communication tool in your arsenal. In Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins, author Annette Simmons explains how to narrate personal experiences as well as borrowed stories in a way that demonstrates authenticity, builds emotional connections, inspires perseverance, and stimulates the imagination. Whether you are leading a presentation, in a department meeting, or having lunch with a potential customer, this book explores how to relate a compelling story to the topic at hand and make an invaluable impact that could not be made otherwise. Join us for a lively discussion as we consider this book’s core concepts and brainstorm ways to utilize the content in our everyday lives.
