Greater Orlando Organization Development Network

book club

Face to face meetings of the Book Club are on hiatus until we find a better way for members to attend.  Anyone who is interested in trying to lead a virtual book club meeting on-line, please contact Karen Agrait, our Special Programs Director.

Meanwhile, you can join a virtual bookclub that is focused on Talent Management and Development.

This VIRTUAL book club connects through a private online forum where all participants can discuss the current book and network with each other.  The online forum is active 24/7 so people can join the conversation from anywhere and at whatever time is convenient for them.  Joining is FREE, you just have to get a copy of the book to enjoy.  

The group will read a new book every two months and titles are related to organization development, business, leadership, training best practices, facilitation and much more.  

Current Talent Management and Development Book

In Dare to Lead, Bren√© Brown declares "I want to live in a world with braver, bolder leaders, and I want to be able to pass that kind of world on to my children...From corporations, nonprofits, and public sector organizations to governments, activist groups, schools and faith communities, we desperately need more leaders who are committed to courageous, wholehearted leadership and who are self-aware enough to lead from their hearts, rather than unevolved leaders who lead from hurt and fear. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover…”

This quote sets up an important question that we will tackle together as a virtual learning community over the coming weeks: How can we become courageous, wholehearted leaders? 

Our Talent and Development Professionals Book Club discussion of Dare to Lead in the Online Forum ( will revolve around three core discussion questions related to key themes in the book that will challenge us to think critically and learn from each other's perspectives. 

To kick off our reading period, we invite you to respond to the pre-reading question: What characteristics do you think are vital for effective leadership? I look forward to seeing your thoughts on the pre-reading question in the Online Forum(
