Career Advancement and Small Business
Introducing The 7:00 Club
The 7:00 Club presents a unique fusion of networking, opportunities to develop facilitation and leadership skills, and the knowledge expansion and sharing of opinions offered by a traditional book club.  This career advancement book discussion aims to meet the needs of motivated individuals seeking to make themselves more marketable and valuable to their current and potential employers and more apt to easily navigate the ever changing sea of the twenty-first century community. 
The group will meet at 7:00 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month excluding July in the library's program room to discuss a book relevant to trends and best practices in management, communication, and leadership.  Some months will feature input from authors, either live or via Skype.  Multiple copies of each work discussed will be available near the Circulation desk.
Hone your leadership skills by volunteering to facilitate a discussion or simply read the book and come ready to share your impressions and ideas.  June's reading selection is Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell .

 Thursday June 7, 7 p.m.

Program Room A

In understanding successful people, we have come to focus far too much on their intelligence, ambition, and personality traits. Instead, Malcolm Gladwell argues in Outliers , we should look at the world that surrounds the successful: their culture, family, generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way, Gladwell reveals what the Beatles and Bill Gates have in common, the reason you’ve never heard of the smartest man in the world, why almost no star hockey players are born in the fall, and why, when it comes to plane crashes, where pilots are born matters as much as how well they are trained.
