We Keep Learning --
Because there is always the
Next New Thing to Learn




A few days ago, I had lunch with a sharp, busy, high-performance leader in a company.  He graduated with his MBA from a respected top-tier university business school.  He attends our monthly event.  His reason/lament...  he simply does not have the time to read that he wishes he had.  He finds the First Friday Book Synopsis to be stimulating.  He especially appreciates the intellectual stimulation of the presentations.  


That is why we have this event!


This month, we will present synopses of two useful books:  


Fear Your Strengths: What You Are Best at Could Be Your Biggest Problem 

by Robert Kaplan and Robert Kaiser (Berrett-Koehler, 2013)


Smart Tribes: How Teams Become Brilliant Together 

by Christine Comaford (Portfolio, 2013)


Come join us.  Learn with us.  I think you will find it to be a valuable use of an early Friday morning.

ps - The Park City Club has a spectacular view of the city, and the best breakfast! you can find -- with a made-to-order omelet bar, and a full and scrumptious buffet. Bring your appetite.
in March, I wrote 30 blog posts, highlighting 30 books over the first 15 years of the First Friday Book Synopsis.   Click here for the full list of 30 -- with links to each of the posts.
