DO YOU WANT TO BE A BOOK CLUB MEMBER ON THE PODCAST?
The most important component for a successful Leadership Book Club discussion are the book club members! Being a book club member is a great development opportunity, a wonderful way to expand your network while discussing a leadership book, and it is a way to share your thoughts and experiences with others!
Here is some information to consider before volunteering to be a book club member:
- We record the podcast over skype. If you have never used skype, we are happy to help you get up to speed with it prior to your first scheduled recording date. You will need to use a headset/earbuds and microphone rather than the mic on your computer/tablet to improve the audio quality.
- We record the first three Mondays of the month at 8:00p eastern.
- You should allow about 1 hour for recording. We keep the actual discussion in the 35-45 minute range, but we always have some conversation before/after the podcast to introduce ourselves and the other book club members, say HI, etc.
- We will send you a copy of the book about a month in advance of your first recording date.
- Although there is a reading guide for each book, the recordings tend to start with one question and then take on a life of their own! As you know from listening, the overall feel of the discussion is informal. It is as if we were sitting around a table with coffee or wine having a chat about the book. Some people have been apprehensive before their first recording, but people universally find it an interesting discussion and can not believe how fast the time flies!
What we expect from you:
- You will have been a leader (currently or in the past).
- You will be ready to participate via skype with a headset/earbuds and mic.
- You will read the book readings prior to our discussion and come to the recording session ready to talk about it!
What you can expect from us:
- We will send you a copy of the book about a month before your first recording date.
- We will be available to help you get started on skype and to answer any questions you might have.
- We will be enthusiastic participants in the book club discussions!
I want to do it! What is the next step?
Email us (LeadershipBookClubPodcast at gmail dot com) and let us know you are interested! We will send you the current openings and associated books and together we will take it from there!
Thanks for considering participating in the Leadership Book Club podcast. We appreciate it and look forward to having a discussion with you!
