Relevant. Purposeful. Selected for you.
There are countless books available on improving professional skills, but most of us have little time to read them, let alone sift through all to find the ones worth reading. So, we decided to help with that first step by sharing books we've found very helpful and relevant to our nonprofit sector.
The club is open to all staff at Center member organizations. We know how busy everyone is, so we'll allow plenty of time for each book.
Interested in joining? Contact Patrick Rabiecki.
Our second book has been selected!
A Meet & Greet was held on April 30 to kick off this next round of exploration. If you missed the kick off, but would still like to join the group, contact Patrick Rabiecki.
Second book: For Every One by Jason Reynolds
After listening to Jason Reynolds' inspiring words at the Center’s 2020 Annual Celebration, we are excited to dive deeper into his mind through his book of poems, For Every One.
Jason is an author and poet from Washington, DC. He has occupied three slots on the New York Times best seller lists for children's literature and won The National Book Award in 2016.
“I'm excited to read For Every One, a collection of poems by Jason Reynolds. I have a feeling that the poems will be inspirational and will encourage introspection,” Aziza Rush, VitalHealth Customer Operations Coordinator and co-planner of the Book Club.
Join us on this enlightening journey, and we'll send you the book free!
Wrap-up on first book
The Center's Book Club is proud to announce the completion of our first book, The Ideal Team Player by Patrick Lencioni. Through this book, Lencioni introduces readers to the “3 essential virtues” (humble, hungry and smart), delving into the aspects of each and what makes them so important. Each month, the Center team sent out notes on what they had read that month, and gave others a chance to share their thoughts on what they read. On Friday, April 16, we held our wrap-up meeting to discuss the book in its entirety. A huge thank you to all who participated in our first round of our Center Book Club!
