Book: Practically Radical by Bill Taylor
Overview: Not so crazy ways to transform your company, shake up your industry, & challenge yourself
Don’t use the long shadow of economic crisis and slow recovery as an excuse to downsize your dreams or stop taking chances. The challenge for leaders in every field is to emerge from turbulent times with closer connections to their customers, with more energy and creativity from their people, and with greater distance between them and their rivals. Practically Radical offers big ideas, proven techniques, and insightful case studies to help leaders meet the challenge.

As a reminder, you don’t have to read the book! The facilitator will share the main principles from the book with the group.
David Phillips with Faster Glass Consulting, will facilitate this stimulating discussion.

During this roundtable we'll:
· share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
· share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
· share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth
Note: We are looking for people to facilitate book discussions, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you’re passionate about and would like to share with the group. We are currently looking to fill the 2012 calendar. The meetings take place the second Friday of every month, so pick a month that suits you for 2012!
