Every quarter, our leadership team sponsors a reading program with our staff designed to foster an environment of continuous learning. It’s a fun way to learn new skills and always leads to engaging conversations within the office. Here’s how it works.
About The Program: Leaders Are Readers
At the beginning of every quarter, our marketing team chooses a new book. Topics vary widely, and titles are selected based on recommendations within the business community.
With each new quarterly book comes a new opportunity for Steelheaders to sign up to participate. The marketing department creates and distributes a questionnaire worksheet for the Steelheaders to fill out pertaining to the assigned reading. The book club meets once a month for an engaging discussion.
Steelhead’s leadership encourages engagement by giving participating employees a $100 gift card. Those who participate every quarter get a bonus of $100.
Favorite Title from 2018: The Compound Effect
At the beginning of 2018, Steelheaders dove into The Compound Effect, by Darren Hardy. Over 25 years, Hardy interviewed countless people that had found great success in everything from business to personal relationships. The Compound Effect is a compilation of his learnings from those interviews.
From the publisher, “The Compound Effect is a distillation of the fundamental principles that have guided the most phenomenal achievements in business, relationships, and beyond. This easy-to-use, step-by-step operating system allows you to multiply your success, chart your progress, and achieve any desire.” At Steelhead, we loved this book. Here’s what Steelheaders had to say about it:
- “It's a life changer.”
- “This gem has the keys to motivation.”
- “The Compound Effect is a series of small, smart choices that over time will create a radical difference.”
Pick up a copy of The Compound Effect to recharge before the new year, or talk to your marketing team about starting a Leaders Are Readers program within your organization!
