We had a wonderful session this morning at the November, 2012 First Friday Book Synopsis. Karl Krayer presented his synopsis of the fable-free Patrick Lencioni book, The Advantage, which included valuable and practical counsel about one-page plans and meeting rhythms… A good and important book.
I presented my synopsis of the Jim Clifton (Chairman of Gallup) book, The Coming Jobs War. It is a disturbing look at the number one need – the creation of many, many, many new jobs.
Our synopses, with audio recordings plus our comprehensive handouts, will be available for purchase soon on our companion web site, 15minutebusinesbooks.com. (We have many synopses available for books that are on everybody’s “I wish I knew what was in this book” list).
Coming November 2, Karl Krayer will present a synopsis of Teaming: How Organizations Learn, Innovate, and Compete in the Knowledge Economy by Amy Edmondson. I am preparing my synopsis of the new Nate Silver book, The Signal and the Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail-but Some Don’t. Nate Silver is quite a numbers guy, but a numbers guy who writes clearly and understandably for number-challenged mortals like me.
If you are in the DFW area, mark your calendar for Friday, November 2, 7:00 am, for this session of the First Friday Book Synopsis. Great food and networking, challenging content… a good way to boost your interactions, build your business relationships, and simply add to your business tool kit.
