Winter Book Club

A time to share and discover through the power of words

The first book choice is "Move Your Bus" by Ron Clark

Ron Clark is a New York Times bestselling author whose book The Essential 55 has sold more than one million copies and has been published in twenty-five different countries. He has been featured on Today, CNN, and Oprah, and Oprah Winfrey even named him her first “Phenomenal Man.” In 2007, he founded the Ron Clark Academy; to date he has trained and inspired more than twenty-five thousand educators from forty-two states and twenty-two countries at the school’s home base in Atlanta, Georgia.

Ron Clark travels across the country consulting with innovative Fortune 500 companies, whip-smart business leaders, and talented individuals across all walks of life. And the one thing he’s learned for certain is: no matter what your business does, the members of your team are the key to unlocking its success. But is your team moving at top speed?

Imagine your company as a bus filled with people who either help or hinder the team’s ability to move it forward: Runners (who consistently go above and beyond for the good of the company), Joggers (who do their jobs without pushing them­selves), Walkers (who are just getting pulled along), and Riders (who hinder success and drag the team down). And as the boss, it’s the Driver’s job to steer the organization, encourage the workers to keep the “bus” moving, and sometimes kick off those who aren’t pulling their weight.

The distance the bus travels represents the goals and progress of your company. In Move Your Bus, Clark will teach you the strategies and techniques you’ll need to inspire employees and team leaders alike to work harder and smarter, maximize team performance, and take your organization where you want to go.
