FAQ's About the Online Book Club and Professional Learning Community...

Why a Book Club and Professional Learning Community? +

As identified, there are 3 main reasons -

  • increasing professional and personal learning,
  • build relationships and grow your network, and
  • accountability.

I know making time for professional learning can be a challenge, so I wanted to make it easier on you. All you need to do is purchase the book and arrive online at the scheduled time (oh, yes and read the book!).

What Are the Group Agreements? +

When you join the Reading, Relationships and Reflection - Book Club and Professional Learning Community, you will be agreeing to the following agreements and expectations. You will be -

  • have fun and in-joy your self,
  • expected to take 100% responsibility for your actions in your personal and professional life,
  • keep all tools to yourself,
  • keep member discussions confidential (and recordings),
  • be respectful of members, and
  • act with integrity.

If any of the above agreements are broken, your membership will be revoked.

What is the First Book? +

The first book is Dare to Lead - Brené Brown.

The reading details are -

  • Discussion Week 1 - Start to Section 3 (page 71), 
  • Discussion Week 2 - Section 3 until Part 2 (page 181)
  • Discussion Week 3 - Part 2 until Notes (page 272).
What Types of Books Are Going to Be Read? +

As the intention is on professional learning with a focus on self-leadership and wellbeing, the books will be non-fiction. Some examples could include -

  • Biographies and memories,
  • Thought leaders,
  • Change leaders.

As indicated, if we continue after the first term, books will be chosen by the group.

Why Linked-in and Not Facebook? +

As this is a professional learning community, I have decided to use Linked-in as Linked-in a more professional network.

Will this be available in 2020? +

It depends on how this trial goes. I will send a quick survey out to the participants to ask for feedforward and then the decision will be made 🙂

Who is the Online Book Club for? +

The online book club and professional learning community is for you if you are ready to read inspirational and life-changing books, have deep discussions with other women (who are also passionate learners) and be held accountable and open to sharing what you have learnt.

Who Can Join the Book Club and Professional Learning Community? +

We want to create a Professional Learning Community, so we ask that you join if you are -

  • willing to learn and grow your skills,
  • going to read the book (yes, one per quarter), and
  • willing to follow the group agreements.
Who Chooses the Book? +

To start with, Jane has chosen the book. If we decide to continue the community, we will decide on how to choose the book. More than likely, it will be a nomination and the top three choices will be voted on.

I Don't Live at the Gold Coast, Can I Still Join? +

Of course you can! As long as you can make the meeting (however don't worry if you miss one, they will be recorded).

Why Only 10 Participants? +

There are many reasons, I would like to create a community -

  • where all voices can be heard and are valued,
  • that is focused on learning and great discussion,
  • who are open to learning and want to read the book, and
  • that wants to build relationships with the people who are in there (quality not quantity).
