Cincinnati Area Book Club Starting
One of my personal goals this year is to read 6 business books. With that in mind I am pulling together a book club to join me.
Our first book is The Marshmallow Test, a memoir & scientific analysis of psychologist Walter Mischel's work on self-control. You may have seen videos of kids participating in the Marshmallow test. Applications of this book could be for employees, students or yourself.
If you have never seen the Marshmallow Test, here is a video that give you an idea of what they did.
I'm interested in this book for several reasons. First, as a professor, I'm interested in ways that I can help to improve student performance. Second as an HR Professional, I believe that this is a concept that can help improve organizational results. Third, well, quite honestly...I think it will be good for me!
Groups will meet once a month. One group will be in the morning in West Chester and the other at lunch near UC.
Group 1's first meeting will be on Wednesday Feb 22, 7AM at the Panera Bread located at 9444 Civic Centre Blvd, West Chester, OH 45069-7144.
Group 2's first meeting will be Thursday Feb 23 11:30-1:00 at the Noodles & Company Restaurant on 7 East Martin Luther King Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45219
Please email or call me if you would like to attend.
