“Listening to my co-workers in this setting really gave me a shared perspective and respect for them."
In Book Group for Work, people with shared work experience meet for a series of discussions about compelling readings connected to a broad theme. A facilitator encourages depth and breadth in the conversation, creating a good atmosphere for a discussion in which everyone has ample opportunity to share their ideas and questions with one another.
Participants report increases in their empathy, cultural awareness, interpersonal skills, communication, and job satisfaction.
All sorts of people in all sorts of places host Book Group for Work programs – hospitals, schools, domestic violence resource centers.
