Chances are, you have a book problem. Does one of these describe you?

  • You give your team a book to read and half (or more) never read it.
  • You learn something great from a book but have trouble getting buy-in from your colleagues.
  • You know employee development is important, but the cost in time and money seems prohibitive.
  • You know that you need to read more, but you just aren't a reader.
;

And you know you are missing out...

  • on team growth
  • on personal growth
  • on building a better workplace
  • on your team or organization excelling at higher and higher levels
;

The answer to all of these problems is to bring a live book-in-30 minutes presentation to your organization!

Employee development builds employee engagement and increases your bottom line. Don't take our word for it...


  • Business.com - "The bottom line is that your willingness to invest in your employees' training and development will likewise inspire them to invest as much hard work as they can in your business."
  • Entrepreneur.com - "A study by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development found that 95% of hiring managers considered employee training a key retention tool."
  • Rapt Media - "Over $500 billion is lost every year due to employee disengagement."
  • HR Magazine - "Companies that invest $1,500 on training per employee can see an average of 24% more profit than companies who invest less."
  • What do Starbucks and IBM know? Training for employees is good business and gives a good ROI.
  • "The Great Principle of Management," Michael Leboeuf "If you believe that training is expensive, it is because you do not know what ignorance costs. Companies that have the loyalty of their employees invest heavily in permanent training programs and promotion systems."

A "Book in 30 Minutes" live event provides one of the fastest, most reliable ways to offer employee development or get your leaders learning together.


Think about it:
  • Nobody can show up unprepared because there is zero preparation.
  • You don't have to harass anyone to read the book your team is supposed to be reading together.
  • Your whole team will share common learning and common vocabulary as you put into practice what you've learned.
  • Nobody will be asked to give up a weekend.
  • Employees will respond to you investing in them by being more invested in the organization.
  • Learning together will increase alignment among your leadership.
  • You will see the difference in a more learning-oriented corporate culture.
  • You will see a difference in your bottom line.

Schedule your event for a lunch, first thing in the morning, end of the day, whenever you want to gather people for an hour.

      Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity

      Kim Scott

      From the time we learn to speak, we’re told that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. When you become a manager, it’s your job to say it--and your obligation. Author Kim Scott was an executive at Google and then at Apple, where she worked with a team to develop a class on how to be a good boss. Radical Candor is a simple idea: to be a good boss, you have to Care Personally at the same time that you Challenge Directly. If you do this wrong, you will either be sappy or obnoxious. Do it right and your organization will feel more alive and grow more profitable.

                    Simon Sinek

                    Too many workplaces are driven by cynicism, paranoia, and self-interest. But the best ones foster trust and cooperation because their leaders build what Sinek calls a "Circle of Safety" that separates the security inside the team from the challenges outside.

                                  Atul Gawande

                                  The modern world has given us stupendous know-how. Yet avoidable failures continue to plague us in health care, government, the law, the financial industry—in almost every realm of organized activity. And the reason is simple: the volume and complexity of knowledge today has exceeded our ability as individuals to properly deliver it to people—consistently, correctly, safely. Atul Gawande makes a compelling argument that we can do better, using the simplest of methods: the checklist.

                                      Greg McKeown

                                      The Way of the Essentialist isn’t about getting more done in less time. It’s about getting only the right things done. It is not a time management strategy, or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not, so we can make the highest possible contribution towards the things that really matter.
