22 July 2021
8:00 am - 9:00 am
The TasCOSS Book Club will focus on leadership, personal development and advocacy through literature and prose. Come along to share your thoughts and reflect on the prescribed resources.
This group provides a pathway for participants from the Community Services Leadership Course and Change Your Impact 2021 to further their own development needs and keep connected with others within the community services industry.
Once you’ve registered for a free session, we’ll keep you in the loop about upcoming sessions and reading resources. Also, you’ll have the opportunity to recommend a text (or two) for the group to study.
The group will be facilitated by members of the TasCOSS team. The TasCOSS Book Club is an opt in, opt out group with no formal obligation.
Prescribed Text and Session Details:
- July — Econobabble by Richard Denniss, facilitated by Bridget Delaney
What is econobabble? We hear it every day, when politicians and commentators use incomprehensible economic jargon to dress up their self-interest as the national interest, to make the absurd seem inevitable or the inequitable seem fair.
This book exposes the stupid arguments, bizarre contradictions and complete lack of evidence upon which much ‘common sense’ about the economy rests in Australia.
- February — Atomic Habits by James Clear
- March — Dare to Lead by Dr Brené Brown
- April — Start with Why by Simon Sinek
- May — Women and Leadership: Real lives, real lessons by Julia Gillard and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala
Details on how to join the Zoom Video Conferencing session will be distributed closer to the date.
Registration for the July session closes 5pm, Wednesday 21 July 2021. For more information, please contact Bridget Delaney, Community Sector Development Officer, on (03) 6231 0755 or email Bridget.
