Event description


Want more success? Then Keep Learning!!!

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

That's where Results 4 Business Book Briefs at Gravitate come in.

Book Briefs is a regular event at Gravitate where you 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 those to your business right away.

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!

We'll have snacks and drinks for you, pop by to network, learn then you'll be on your way, smarter, happier and better looking than you were before (well at least smarter and happier).

We guarantee it!

March's Book - The Ideal Team Player

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 Brief is a must attend.

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 Book Briefs at Gravitate are all about!

Here are a few comments from previous Book Briefs attendees:

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

"I've had the opportunity to attend many events and this was one of the more informative and relevant one's I've attended. The book had some great information, however Keri’s insights and the way she presented the material were even more helpful. I have to be selective on how I spend my time and this was a great investment."

“This really added a dynamic to the way I would have been able to think about and comprehend the material on my own.”

You'll get a lot out of reading The Ideal Team Player... and you'll get even more by joining into the Book Briefs discussion! Guaranteed!

Who Should Attend?

Business leaders and professionals who have a need to keep learning, but don't have the time nor the inclination to read...or just realize they will get even more out of the discussion of the material than reading it.

How does it work?

We'll keep it simple - come in at 1:00 for networking. Gravitate will provide something tasty and something refreshing to drink. You'll have a few minutes to meet the other attendees. At 1:30 we'll get rolling and dive into the discussion of the book. About 1/2 the time will be spent covering the key ideas and the other 1/2 will be more of a group discussion.

We're limiting the group size to 35, 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, have more fun, feel taller...all the good stuff.

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!

Join Us - we look forward to seeing you on March 11, 2019 from 1-3 pm at Gravitate.
