Overview and Details
Would you like to learn about different ideas, topics, thoughts, opinions and perspectives? If so, the non-fiction book club is for you. Once a month, we will meet to discuss one book for one hour. Most of the books will be available as audiobooks so you can easily listen to them on the way to work.
You don’t necessarily have to have read the book - it’s more important that you’re open to discussing the key ideas in it. Also, I will create some slides of the core ideas and put them on the screen.
During the conversations, we will answer the questions “what did you like/dislike?”, “what was your key take-away?“ and “how do you think this will influence your actions?“ We will be open to any and all opinions and give everyone a chance to speak (if they would like to). Afterwards, anyone who wishes can go for a coffee, beer or soft drink, but there are no obligations.
When: First Thursday of every month, 5:30pm - 6:30pm
Where: 20 Office Suites, Harcourt Street, Dublin 2
Who: All are welcome but please register
Early bird tickets are free.
An insightful new work from the multimillion-copy best-selling author Sean Covey and the FranklinCovey organization, based on their work with hundreds of thousands of employees and large companies. It unveils the essential disciplines proven to help businesses and individuals realize their most important goals.
A publishing phenomenon, Sean Covey and the FranklinCovey organization have become one of the most respected brands in the highly competitive world of thought leadership in business. In his latest work, Covey lays out an unprecedented plan for goal-realization that will revolutionize the way we approach our dreams.
The 4 Disciplines of Execution provides a simple, proven formula for achieving the goals that every individual or organization needs to reach. From Marriott to the U.S. Navy, Covey and his team have worked with more than 200,000 people in hundreds of organizations to improve performance, identifying and honing four secrets of perfect execution:
Focus on the Wildly Important
Act on the Lead Measures
Keep a Compelling Scoreboard
Create a Cadence of Accountability
By allowing teams to separate those urgent tasks that demand attention merely to keep a company alive-called the "whirlwind"-from new, "wildly important" goals that promise to break new ground, these disciplines empower leaders to accomplish what is by far the most difficult aspect of creating results: executing a strategy that requires a change in behavior. Simply put, this is a work that no business, however small or large, can afford to pass up.
