CSN What Matters at Work book club (Provide Your Own Book)  (back)
Join us to read and discuss the book What Matters at Work by Harry Webne-Behrman!
The Workplace is a critical, high-stakes environment. We are expected to be available at all hours, across modes and platforms, all in service to some vague priorities of customer service. We spend much of our lives in the world of work, and rarely give one another permission, encouragement, and support to develop more intentional, well-considered ways of approaching such time with a deeper sense of purpose.

Fortunately, there is a quiet, powerful revolution occurring within the 21st-century organization, and we can notice these forces, harvest their practices, and build upon their insights to focus on What Matters. That’s where this guide comes in: To reflect on What Matters at Work is to consider what has been learned and apply it to the pragmatic realities of work life.

What Matters At Work is organized as a series of thirty-three “Lessons,” each offering a lens into a practice that can help us clarify our focus and discern those things we truly value that should guide our efforts. Practice Scenarios and Worksheets are provided to allow all who are participating important resources to the practice and implementation of these ideas.

During this two-session event, CSN will work through several of these lessons, with different options for you to choose from.

Register today if you can join us for both sessions; we will read sections of this book and do several group exercises from it. CSN will send you the lesson materials (but no book) via UPS before the first session. YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE YOUR OWN BOOK.
