Welcome to HR Book Club. Reading will change your life if you let it, and I believe you can read 12 books in 2018. Let’s get started.
I’ll announce January’s books on Tuesday. First, let’s set some rules.
The first rule of book club: All rules are arbitrary and meaningless. Don’t like a book suggestion? Want to read something different? Who cares? The goal is to read 12 books in a supportive community. Learn more about the thinking behind the club here.
The second rule: Let’s keep it fun and respectful. Everybody wins when we come together as a community and support each other’s healthy reading habits.
The final rule: You can start a different HR Book Club, and it would be a blessing to the industry. Reading makes any profession better, and almost all books are HR books if they deal with humanity and identity. So feel free to pivot from this effort at any point and do your own thing. I’m not the HR Book Club police.
At some point, this entire thread will move to HR Books, a domain that I purchased with some spare change from under the front seat of my car. We’ll have reviews, articles from HR book authors, etc., and it should be fun.
Stay tuned for the launch and sign up here for more information. Have ideas and suggestions for the club? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
Happy New Year. Back tomorrow with books!
