I am super excited to discuss the two books I have chosen for the month of February!
Brene Brown is a researcher/storyteller that has dedicated years of studies to the following concepts: shame, vulnerability, courage, and empathy. I have been following her work for the past 3 years and think she has some valuable ideas to share. I am hoping that book club members will enjoy her as much as me!
Dare to Lead is about challenging people to recognize the potential in others and listening to new ideas. A great leader will take these individuals and ideas and develop them. The book includes 4 skill sets to help develop the skills necessary to be a great leader. We are all leaders in some way and this book will help us to develop the skills to strive to be better in our community and profession. Brene also provides some great guides on her website Dare to Lead Hub that we can utilize for our book discussions. Check out this small clip to learn more about Daring to Lead !
The Gifts of Imperfection addresses the topics of self love and acceptance. In our current world environment learning to be authentic in our lives and have self acceptance is a necessary. This book will challenge you to move through your life journey whole heartedly. Book club discussion Reading Guides are also available on the website for this pick! I have also participated in several of Brene’s online trainings and have some additional resources for this book. Check out this small clip to learn more about Gifts of Imperfection !
I feel that either of these books will provide great inspiration for the book club members. I am hoping to provide some other exercises from Brene’s work into our meeting in March for our hour of self development. The benefits of attending the upcoming Meet & Greet will allow you to vote on the book you would most like to read for our kick off book. If you can not make it February 10th but plan on attending in March for the official start of the book club you can reach out to me through my Contact page and I will count your vote!
Please take the time to check out each book further through the links provided!
Enjoy your Journey,
