In any given week, I am leading anywhere from 2 to 10 book circles (Yes, I could balance it out better, couldn't I?)
Each book circle is unique.
I don't have a blueprint meeting facilitation guide that I copy and paste each session.
What that takes, then, are thought and creativity.
I live into a range of questions.
Yet, if I sit in front of my computer planning all of these sessions, I go nowhere.
My best thinking, and best creativity is away from my desk, and away from the book at hand.
Many of you have experienced this yourselves.
You're going nowhere with your problem-solving, then as soon as you take a break and change your scenario, a beautiful idea pops into your head.
Are you intentionally creating these spaces and places to do your best thinking, or does it happen randomly?
In March and April, our book circle for individuals leaders will be reading Annie Murphy Paul's recent book, The Extended Mind which explores how our best thinking and most creative moments come not from using our brain, but from thinking beyond the brain.
If you are interested in joining us, we would love to have you.
I'll put my calendar link in the comments, and you can book a virtual coffee with me, so I can tell you more about what we do.
