Why Books?

  • Books deeply explore important professional topics
  • Books are well crafted with research, relevant perspectives and valuable real-world examples
  • Books are read over weeks and months giving people time to process and apply their learning
  • Reading helps develop difficult to train for skills including critical thinking, communication and collaboration

Why Book Clubs?

  • Social learning engages and encourages participants
  • Book clubs offer a set schedule and just enough social pressure so people actually find time to read
  • Participants learn from the experience of others, which helps to expand and reinforce their learning
  • Book clubs expose people to areas of professional development they would not normally explore on their own

Why Virtual Book Clubs?

  • Participation is possible from anywhere in the world
  • People can join the conversation online when it’s convenient instead of adding one more meeting to their calendar
  • Programs easily scale from groups of a few dozen to thousands depending on organizational needs
  • Participants can connect with people they would otherwise never reach
