WRBG Book Club
Next Meeting: January--Date to be set after winter break
Book Club guidelines:
Success depends on participation – collectively we should share ideas, ask questions, and engage others in conversation.
Respectfully listen and hold space for others.
Listen to understand, share your unique perspective, and speak honestly.
Be positive, non-judgmental & open to new ideas.
Critique ideas, not people. Remember to practice non-defensiveness during the discussion.
Respect each others’ thinking and value their contributions. Everything happens through courageous conversations.
