Here’s an update from the Coaches Book Club who held their second meeting this week on Weds 20th February.
As well as sharing our reviews on the two chosen books ‘Time to Think’ and ‘Humble Inquiry’, we also shared feedback and recommendations on a wealth of other books we are reading / have read.
Isabela sent me this apt quote which nicely sums up our group:
“For every book you buy, you should buy the time to read it.” Karl Lagerfeld

Please come to the next session ready to talk about one of these books, if you choose to read one. And we will also begin with a more open frame so you can share your views on ANY book you have read.
Please let me know if you intend to attend the March session, as I will send the ZOOM link only to those who have said they’ll come along. You can scroll down to the Eventbrite registration link or just email me a quick note to say you intend to come.
Our first meeting took place on Wednesday 30th Jan, from 12.30pm to 2.00pm. There were 13 of us who attended.
In this session, everyone shared their top recommendations from books they had read last year, or all time favourites. Plus most made suggestions based on what we have on our book shelves ready to read in 2019.
We have set up a shared space here where you can see a summary of all the books discussed and recommended. Plus you can download an mp3 recording of this session.
BOOKS CHOSEN TO READ FOR FEB’S MEETING:
We agreed to TWO suggested book reads for February, we can choose between these:
Humble Inquiry by Edgar H Schein
Time to Think by Nancy Kline
JOINING THE SESSIONS
Come and join us as a silent attendee if you haven’t read the books and want to know more, or as a full participant if you have read either book and would like to join in! You can participate even if you’ve only read some of the book, for instance you might want to share your personal review of a specific chapter.
No spoilers to worry about at a book club reading non-fiction books! But there’s no reason why we might not chose an inspirational fiction book at some point, if it’s a valuable read for coaches.
If you have registered with us, we’ll be in touch soon with full joining instructions and an access link / telephone number for this online event.
The March meeting is on Weds 20th March, 12.30pm to 2.00pm.
