Surveyors Book Club

Read a good book lately?  And I don't mean Harry Potter or 50 Shades of Grey or maybe you a"Song of Ice and Fire" fan?  How about Jim Collins "Good to Great" or Simon Sinek "Start with Why?"

As leaders of your organisation how are you increasing your knowledge and understanding of the changing world around us?

"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies...  The man who never reads lives only one." - George R.R. Martin
 

"Think before you speak.  Read before you think." - Fran Lebowitz
 

To help with this, we have introduced a Book Club! We are encouraging our members to read the chosen book through the quarter and we'll come together to discuss it - and if I can swing it, I'll try and get some of the authors to join us!

The books we've chosen have come from members suggestions and will be themed to support your business:

  • Leadership and Management
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Culture and Teams
  • Productivity and Self-Development

We launched this new endeavour with Jeff Brown (not the ACT Surveyor-General) the Podcast Host of READ TO LEAD in August 2020 and he shared why reading is vital for business owners and what he has learned from interviewing hundreds of authors over the last few years.  Catch up on the webinar we held by clicking on this link or on the photo of Jeff.

I listen to Jeff's podcast every week and it really helps me decide which books to read.  One of his recent podcasts on "Cracking the Leadership Code" I thought was great as the author, Alain Hunkins, explained how we need to overcome generations of "this is how we've always done it" especially when it comes to our staff and teams.  It's only 35 minutes and I encourage you to take a listen to see shy I've added this book to our list of books to read.

Book Club is for members only. The only cost is the book in your chosen format - paperback, hardback, audible or kindle...
