Chic Geek Book Club

The Chic Geek Book Club meets every other month and we explore literature on a range of topics including female leaders, entrepreneurship, technology and startups. It’s a chance to meet some other (really cool) Chic Geeks, learn something new and have a great discussion.

Our September book is by Fierce Conversations by Susan Scott. Here’s a little information about the book:

How do you have those difficult conversations? You know, the ones that give you butterflies just thinking them. The ones that curb your appetite and keep you up at night. Fierce Conversations explores ways that you can tackle your toughest challenges fearlessly, through dialogue - one conversation at a time. According to Scott, a fierce conversation is "one in which we come out from behind ourselves, into the conversation and make it real."

    Hey Chic Geeks! I have a confession to make...I've been a terrible organizer this month and haven't read the book :( I'm afraid I won't be able to contribute much to the conversation, but I've outlined some initial questions that can help guide conversation. Is there anyone else in the group that would like to take the lead on guiding the conversation for today's book club meeting?

    Starter Discussion Questions for Book Club Today!

    What are your thoughts about: “Do not trust your instincts. Obey them.”

    What did you think about the “stump speech?” Do you have one? What lesson/learning resonated the most with you? What was the hardest thing for you to learn in Fierce Converseations?

    Is there anything that you disagree with? Or don’t believe? Has reading the book encouraged you to change the way you communicate? How? What are examples of fierce conversations you’ve been involved with? Did you discover anything about your own reality when you were encouraged to interrogate it? What are the conversations you’ve been unable or unwilling to have that, if you were able to have, might change everything? There was a line, “who you are is how you lead.” How would you describe your leadership style?
