As we frequently talk about with our clients and in our posts, personal and professional development are key to growing into strong leaders ready for the challenges of tomorrow. Approaching development¬†from the perspective of a student of leadership as an art and science is an effective way to absorb new ideas and incorporate them into your leadership philosophy and style. ¬†This kind of development can be difficult to do on your own if you don’t have a group of other leaders to discuss and debate with. We want to help build a strong community of leaders who have a forum to discuss the ideas that are on their minds. As a first step, we are really excited to announce the first of our monthly Leadership Book Club Twitter chats starting in on August 7th, 2015 at 10AM Pacific Time to help foster and grow that community.

August’s Leadership Book Club Theme – Building Creativity

One of the greatest skills that a leader can have is an ability to foster creativity in themselves and others. A great book that discusses the creative process and dispels some long-held myths is “Where Good Ideas Come From” by Steven Johnson. We’ll be discussing the book as well as our own experiences with the creative process. Please join us on August 7th for the Leadership Book Club Twitter chat and the Twitter hashtag #reads4leaders to be part of the conversation! Also look for us on Meerkat and Periscope as we live stream the discussion.
