In our last newsletter we spoke about the 100-Day Plan and Why Book Clubs Will Benefit Your Organization (especially in these virtual times.)

As we begin to move through this very difficult and often isolated period and implement our 100- day plan, what we have often believed intuitively has become clear in reality. Social interactions play an essential role in well being, which, in turn, has a positive impact on employee engagement. Organizations with higher levels of employee engagement see results in many areas, such as:

• lower costs,
• improved performance and efficiency,
• lower staff turnover and absenteeism,
• and fewer safety incidents
• improved employee involvement

We will have to be creative to get our employees engaged and to feel like they are part of a vibrant and caring organizations while adhering to safety protocols which may not allow us to meet regularly in person.

Our mission from a people perspective is clear; to inspire our people to be the best, the accomplish this?

One way I would propose that we do it is through Virtual Book Clubs.

The Virtual Book Club

Settling down with a great book allows you an escape—and the space to contemplate ideas that might have never crossed your mind or to explore the “What If question?

But while reading a new book in the privacy of your own home is often a great way to relax and promote self-education. In a Virtual Book Club setting, with the right books you can promote learning and development in a fun, conversational, and educational way. And sometimes you just want to discuss what you have read with another person—or two—to bring those ideas off the page and into the world. A book club, even a virtual one can create a sense of community.

I am offering my time to help anyone who would like to start a business book club in their organization. My personal offer to get started: You purchase my book, Tighten The Lug Nuts, as your first book or as one of your books and I will dial in free of charge as a thank you for purchasing the book. I will facilitate the discussion about the book, a chapter, or a concept. I can also help recommend books for future reading, etc.

I hope you take me up on my offer to start your book club at your place of business as they are a serious employee development opportunity that provides benefits for the employee—and for the employer when it is implemented with care. In your book club, your employees can learn new concepts and new ways of doing activities that questions which will enable employees to apply the concepts on the job. Finally, we can build a book club that:

• builds camaraderie, comfort, and teamwork in the group of employees who attend. It is a team-building activity that works as well as the ones in the traditional settings and can flourish during virtual times.

• employees learn the same concepts as, by reading the same book, they share the same language, and they hear the same ideas. It makes the application and adoption of the ideas and concepts more easily and seamlessly into the workplace.

• The book club gives employees the opportunity to step up and practice leadership roles such as leading a group discussion or presenting to provide an overview of a chapter.

• You can help your organization become a learning organization in which people continuously grow and develop.

Select Tighten The Lug Nuts as your first book and I will offer my time to participate in your book club free of charge as a thank you for your purchase at www.TightenTheLugNuts.com, to demonstrate my commitment to training and development.
