The Professional Foundations Committee is sponsoring the 2017 GLACUHO Book Club. This year's selection is "Originals: How Non-conformists Move the World" by Adam Grant. We will be exploring themes related to the book in online discussion forums.


  Description from Amazon: Using surprising studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports, and entertainment, Grant explores how to recognize a good idea, speak up without getting silenced, build a coalition of allies, choose the right time to act, and manage fear and doubt; how parents and teachers can nurture originality in children; and how leaders can build cultures that welcome dissent. Learn from an entrepreneur who pitches his start-ups by highlighting the reasons not to invest, a woman at Apple who challenged Steve Jobs from three levels below, an analyst who overturned the rule of secrecy at the CIA, a billionaire financial wizard who fires employees for failing to criticize him, and a TV executive who didn’t even work in comedy but saved Seinfeld from the cutting-room floor. The payoff is a set of groundbreaking insights about rejecting conformity and improving the status quo. 

GLACUHO is pleased to announce that we have free copies available to the first 20 participants from the GLACUHO region who register to participate. When you register, there will be an option to select a free book (if copies are still available) or also a "BYOB" (Bring Your Own Book") option. All are welcome to participate with the BYOB option! Free book quantities are limited.
