In March of 2014 TCI South Florida added an engaging new monthly program for our members, Business Books & Coffee, and we have enjoyed our monthly discussions with members and guests. Business Books & Coffee has become a successful addition to our event calendar! This program was created to help our members stay at the forefront of business developments that will help them execute their business strategy, become an influential leader, and position their company for success.
According to the U.S. Labor Department, business people who read at least seven business books per year earn over 230% more than people reading just one book per year! Why? The world of business is an ever-changing environment based on the latest trends and newest ideas.
The Business Book Club (BBC) meets to discuss relevant and thought-provoking business books in order to-
Learn… current business trends and ideas.
Discover… tools for personal and professional growth.
Connect… with business colleagues.
Identify… organizational best practices.
At the end of each meeting suggestions are made on relevant and intriguing business books and the group votes on their next selection. To provide you more insight on the books we have been reading below is a running list of of book recommendations and recent selections:
- “Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High”
- “Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us”
- “The Confidence Code”
- “Play Like a Man, Win Like a Woman”
- “The War of Art”
- “No Ceilings, No Walls”
- “Lean In”
We are alternating between Broward and Dade County for our meetings which will be on the first Wednesday of every month.
