The Turning Pages, Taking Action Series is an eight-part book discussion series designed to create a collaborative deep dive into the key learnings of some of the most popular books on the bestsellers list. The series aims to promote personal and professional growth by developing leadership, mentorship, and other skills through group reading and discussion. Each eight-week series will focus on a different book focused on core topics in personal and professional growth, and participants will engage in group discussions to explore key takeaways and collaborate on actionable steps that can be taken to promote growth.
The first book we will focus on in this series is Dare to Lead by Brene Brown. During each session, we will begin with a grounding to focus the group on getting the most out of the discussion and then we will then engage in Sprint-tros, or breakouts, to discuss reflections on the book in smaller groups, and regroup to explore the book's resources and key takeaways. Using a variety of tools, along with resources provided by Brene Brown we will set out on an exploration of the ways the insights in Dare to Lead can empower us and our organizations to better Leadership principles and actions. The session will conclude with a clear set of action items to prep for the next gathering in the series.
