The Totally Unconventional Book Club June Meeting

The book club for professionals who don’t have a heck of a lot time to read, but love to learn and get new perspectives. Here’s what makes this book club different: rather than everyone reading the same book and then getting together to discuss it, one person reads a book and presents a summary to the group, then we have an open discussion on the topic. So there’s some reading involved, but only if you’ve read a book, found it worthy of summarizing for the group, and volunteer to do so. Our general category of book for this club is Business, but we mean that in the broadest sense of the word.

Our June meeting will feature Tribal Leadership by John King and David Logan. The book will be presented by Salley Trefethen,

Bring your own lunch (drinks are provided by Convivium) and your computer (everyone is invited to stay and cowork after the event).

    Today at our latest Totally Unconventional Business Book Club we enjoyed an amazing presentation by Salley Trefethen on Tribal Leadership by John King and David Logan.

    We discussed the 5 different stages of “tribes” which range from Alienated (Life Sucks!) to Team (Life's great!) We also discussed the different processes of how to level up into higher stages, which is something we should all strive for! Higher stages have better community and efficiency, which makes everyone more productive and happy. Those at the top stage are those who make history and achieve the highest greatness.

    Thanks to Salley for such a wonderful presentation and explanation of Tribal Leadership!

    If you could not make this Totally Unconventional Business Book Club, join us next time for The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss presented by our very own Renee Holmes on July 31st at 11:30am!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
