So many books, so little time...


Few books have had the impact of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni.  This book, like most of his other books, weaves a "fable," and then Mr. Lencioni draws business lessons from his carefully constructed fable.  His newest book, The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else In Business is his first ever "non-fable" book.  He makes the case that organizational health is critical -- it trumps everything else in business, as his sub-title says.  Karl Krayer will present this synopsis.


I will present my synopsis of The Coming Jobs War by Jim Clifton, the CEO of the Gallup Organization.  This book deals with the most pressing economic issue of our time -- the disappearance of, and the need for, good jobs.  


As always, we have great food, wonderful connections, and lively networking.  It really is a useful and valuable use of your time on an early Friday morning.  


(And, we really do finish by about 5 minutes after 8:00 every single month.  You can count on us).  


Come join us on October 5.  You'll be glad you did.
