Come join us for our June gathering 
The First Friday Book Synopsis is custom made for this fast-paced, constantly changing world.  We meet monthly to keep learning, and to meet people that will help us as we aim higher.  And each session serves as an idea factory, helping us with the kinds of interactions that can make us better at what we do.

And we have provided this opportunity every month for over 14 years.

On June 1, we have selected two terrific books.  The Power of Habit, a book that has generated a lot of buzz, is useful for developing both good personal habits and good organizational habits.  (And it will also help you overcome some of those not-so-good habits, personally and organizationally).

All In will help you understand the challenge facing your organization to build a genuinely shared, everyone on-board organizational culture.  

The book synopses provide the content -- Karl Krayer and I will each present a fast-paced synopsis of our selected book.  

But the conversation, and the interactions, will help you just as much.

(And for you food lovers, the Park City Club breakfast buffet is the best I've found, by far!)

Come join us, Friday, June 1.  It is a great way to keep you on your ever-learning, ever-growing path.
