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 Aspire's Business Book Reviews come in. This is going to be a regular event 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!

It's 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!

This Month's Book - Give and Take

Adam Grant has written a fascinating, heavily researched book that takes a different kind of look at how people succeed. It turns out you can classify people into 3 different types...Givers, Takers and Matchers. Just like it sounds, Givers have a strong tendency to give more than they get and do so willingly, even enthusiastically. Takers try to get more out of every exchange than they give and Matchers will tend to give and take based on what the other person does.

It turns out that one style has dramatically more business success than the other two...and that same style also accounts for the worst performers as well!

A Revolutionary Approach to Success

As you might have guessed, Givers tend to fall on both ends of the success spectrum and Takers and Matchers tend to fall in the middle.

The difference in the most successful Givers and the least successful? The successful Givers are more discriminating on where they give, choosing to invest in people who will make something happen and avoiding Takers when possible.

What's the driver for these differences? Based on Grant's research here's a few ideas:

  • Givers are more motivated - the act of giving fires them up
  • Givers are building for the future...long term investments that often pay off
  • Givers are trusted more...which is a big driver of success

It might be easy to dismiss a lot of the ideas as just great stories, but Grant has done a lot of verified research to back up his findings. Where do you fall in the spectrum? Would being more of a Giver benefit you? How would you go about doing that?


Not only will you learn some different perspectives, but you'll also walk away with actionable, tangible ideas that will help you be more effective and successful. This will be a great discussion.

Here are a few comments from previous Business Book Reviews:

“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, your insights and the way you 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 Give and Take but you'll get even more by joining into the Business Book Review discussion! Guaranteed! (And you don't need to read the book...).

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 just reading it (i.e. a lot of smart people we know)!


How does it work?

We'll keep it simple - come in at 8:00, Aspire will provide breakfast (something tasty - bagel, pastry, kolache...) 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 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 30, 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 know now 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!
