Greater Orlando Organization Development Network

book club

The Book Club meetings offer another great way to stay involved with the GOOD Network while keeping up on the latest trends and growing professionally.

The Book Club is 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 Kirsten Cooper, our Special Programs Director.

The book club is a smaller, more informal sub-set of members that meet on a quarterly basis in the evenings to discuss a business book of choice that is relevant to the OD profession. The focus of our discussion is around how the techniques or theories discussed in the book can apply to our current practices. 

Attendance is usually around 6-15 members, which offers a personalized and comfortable environment for discussion. Bringing a handout or summary of your thoughts about the book is encouraged as a take-away to share with other attendees.

Check out the Events page to learn about the current book that the Book Club is reading and to register to attend.
