Description

Want more business, career, and personal success? Then keep learning!!!

The most successful business leaders make learning a priority.

Studies have repeatedly shown that the most successful people are those who are constantly learning new ideas. The good news is there are lots of great business books out there to learn from – the challenge for most of us is finding the time to actually read them.

Time to check out the Ballantyne Business Book Reviews!

November's book: The Ideal Team Player, by Patrick Lencioni (see below for details...)

That’s where the Ballantyne Business Book Reviews comes in. A regular ongoing series where Charlotte business leaders, owners, and professionals will be able to pick up the key ideas and themes from a great business book…and get some ideas on how to start applying them right away. For about the price of a hard back, you’ll get breakfast and a complete summary and review of an important book.

And the best part? You don’t even need to read the book! We’ll cover the key points, have a great group discussion and get you on your way. You’ll walk out with a several page summary, some new knowledge and introductions to like-minded business owners and professionals who also want to learn and be successful!

The morning meetings may be kind of early – but we’ll have coffee and breakfast for you and you’ll be on your way, smarter, happier and better looking than you were before (well at least smarter and happier). We guarantee it!

Here’s what people are saying:

“I thoroughly enjoyed the group discussion around the key points of the book…”

“The best 1.5 hours I’ve spent in a long time.”

“I thought this was extremely valuable. It was very inspirational and my head is already spinning with ideas and things I want to implement.”

“Saved me time – gave me important information – had interesting discussions! Went back to work! (Great use of my time)!”

Who should attend?

Business leaders, professionals, and community leaders who have a need to keep learning, but don’t have the time nor the inclination to read (i.e. a lot of smart people we know)!

How does it work?

We’ll keep it simple – come in at 8:00, Ethos will provide breakfast (something tasty – bagels, fruit, yogurt, …) and some coffee and we’ll get rolling. You’ll have a few minutes to meet the other attendees and then we’ll dive into the review and discussion of the book. About half the time will be spent covering the key ideas and the other half will be more of a group discussion.

We’re limiting the group size to 20 or so; small enough so everyone can participate, but large enough to have a lively exchange with lots of different viewpoints and ideas.

We’ll close on time and get you on with your day, secure in the knowledge that you now know more…and will be more successful.

Complete Guarantee

If for any reason you don’t feel like you learned at least a couple of useful new ideas, then you will get a complete and cheerful refund…and get to keep your summary!

Our Next Book -

The Ideal Team Player, by Patrick Lencioni

Ideal Team Player Book Cover

Patrick Lencioni knows more than a few things about creating great teams. He's the author of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team (great book) and he's been working with companies to help them build great teams for the last 20+ years...!

Lencioni believes (and I agree with him) that a great team is the heart of your competitive advantage as a business. More so than technology, location, business model - having a great team will drive more success and profits than anything else you can do. That's why this book is so great. In the Ideal Team Player, Lencioni identifies the 3 characteristics that your team members must have if they're going to be part of that great team.

How to Recognize and Cultivate the Three Essential Virtues

In his earlier books, Lencioni has outlined how to build a great team - but this book really dives into the type of people you need if that teamwork is going to pan out.

And the best part is, like all of Lencioni's work, is a straightforward, intuitive model that you can start using right away. He identifies the 3 Virtues (personality characteristics) needed and how you can recognize and build them within your own team. The 3 Virtues? Great question - if you want a team that's going to hit on all cylinders, then that team needs to be made up of people who are Humble, Hungry and Smart (like people smart, not IQ). Obviously there's a lot more to it than just those 3 words, but that gives you a pretty good starting point.

You should read this book. But even better than just reading the book is getting a chance to discuss it with other business owners...and that's what Business Book Reviews are all about!
