PSI Book Club
Welcome to the PSI Careers Book Club!
The Book Club is for PSI Members to discuss and practice learnings from a wide range of books relevant to their role and network with colleagues from the industry. Facilitators will also have an opportunity to lead and chair discussions.
We are reading and discussing non-technical books which are relevant to our roles. Participants are split into smaller discussion groups so members can network with each other and practice exercises to help implement their learnings.
We are also looking for facilitators who will be leading the discussion groups. Facilitators will be provided specific guidance for each book with ideas on how to run the group discussions. You do not need to have prior experience with leading a book club and this is an excellent chance to get more out of the book! We will provide material, discussion points and support for each facilitator. There will be also a Q&A session at the beginning for any questions that may arise.
Make sure to indicate on the registration form if you are interested!
The next book we are reading is "Dare to Lead" by Brené Brown. Based on research conducted with leaders, change makers and culture shifters, this book shows how to put those ideas to "dare greatly, rise strong and brave the wilderness" into practice so we can set up an lead.
This is not your typical leadership book but helps on your journey of personal-empowerment. It asks the question: What is courage actually and can it be learned or do we have to be born with it?
The registration has started. The registration will be open until the 17th of March.
