Chic Geek Book Club

  • May 25, 2014 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Our May book is To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others by Daniel Pink. How do you persuade, influence and move others? Whether we’re employees pitching colleagues on a new idea, entrepreneurs enticing funders to invest, or parents and teachers cajoling children to study, we spend our days trying to move others. Like it or not, we’re all in sales. Using a mix of social science, survey research and rich stories, this book offers a fresh look at the art and science of sales. Through the Chic Geek Book Club, we’ll explore six successors to the elevator pitch, three rules for understanding another’s perspective and the five frames that can help make your message clearer.

Sunday, May 25th

3pm – 5pm

Good Earth (1502 – 11th St SW)

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.

    Great meeting tonight! It was so fun hearing everyone's insight on the book. I have a suggestion for a future techie book I've been wanting to read - Present Shock by David Rushkoff. I read another book of his and found it very thought provoking!

    There are some great web resources mentioned in the book... Here's one of them: http://www.danpink.com/assessment/

    I'm an ambivert! :) ...though I suspect I lean to the introverted side of things.

      Thanks for sharing Hannah! I'm an ambivert too (surprise!), but more on the extroverted side.

      I get the impression that anyone not on the extreme ends of the spectrum are considered ambiverts in this quiz...cause that's what I got too!

    This looks like a great book. Too bad I have an out-of town commitment!

      I'm on the last section. Should be a good discussion!

    Time well spent reading the book: practical and game-changing tips ready to be adopted to improve many, if not every, levels and types of interactions.
