Book Club

Treat yourself to a good book and thought-provoking discussion this Spring and Summer! After launching a CBODN Summer Book Club in 2023, we are thrilled to return this year and join members and guests in an hour of facilitated discussion. Our time together will center around the themes presented in each selected book that matter to you as an OD practitioner. This monthly gathering is geared towards members and guests interested in a peer-supported and enhanced reading experience that offers new perspectives and personal development. Join us as we connect with fellow OD practitioners in a positive, supportive environment while promoting a love for reading and continuous learning.

This Book Club also offers a great opportunity for members who are looking to practice or improve their facilitation skills, by co-facilitating alongside our recurring CBODN host. If you are interested in helping to facilitate a session and/or have a book selection suggestion, please reach out to Rachel Green (rachelbourgeoisgreen@gmail.com) for more information.

Book Selection:

On March 8th, we will be reading and discussing Humble Consulting: How to Provide Real Help Faster by Dr. Edgar Schein. If you attended last year's Book Club(s), you'll know that we read another book from his "Humble" series to honor his contribution to our field. We enjoyed the insights so much that we are returning for more of his timeless work. We hope that you'll join us!

Don't have time to read the whole book? That's okay! You are encouraged to attend whether you've read the whole thing, a few chapters, or even just the back cover. During the session we will provide the opportunity for peers to share their recap from the book and for all to explore their insights and learnings more deeply. 

For future Book Club suggestions, or to appear as a guest facilitator, please respond to our interest form.
