This morning at the Nov. 1 First Friday Book Synopsis, I presented my synopses of Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead, by Jim Mattis; and The Infinite Game by Simon Sinek. Both of these books were good; informative; challenging. I liked them both. But, a confession: I more than liked — I loved — the Mattis book. It is a book that overflows with substance. Really, really good book!
I will post blog posts, with my lessons and takeaways, for both of these books soon.
(I am actually a little behind on my posts; I still have to do one more from our October event, for the book The Optimist’s Telescope. Part of my problem: my schedule is still pretty disrupted due to the aftermath from the tornado that hit nearly two weeks ago).
And, a special thank you to Tach Branch-Dogans on her helpful bonus session on building your referral connections. (Our bonus sessions run from 8:30-9:30, immediately following our regular First Friday Book Synopsis sessions). Sheri Wilson will lead our bonus session on Dec. 6, on Financial Foundations.
For our December 6 First Friday Book Synopsis gathering, I will present synopses of two more books; as I do every month. (We are in our 22nd year of monthly gatherings).
I have selected the really good book on customer service, from the folks at Disney and Ted Kinni: Be Our Guest. And also, the new book by Ben Horowoitz: What you do is Who You are: How to create Your Business Culture.
Plan to join us: Dec. 6, 7:00 am, the Park City Club, Dallas.
Here is the flier with all the details. You will be able to register soon from this web site.
