How does an underlying passion impact others, improve our shared community and inspire positive change? Are there opportunities in Bentonville that support one’s passions, and what have others done to align their lives with their purpose?
All of the above questions will be answered in an exciting new initiative of Mayor Stephanie Orman entitled, The Mayor’s Book Club scheduled for July 19-30, 2021.
In collaboration with Bentonville Public Library (BPL) and sponsored by Bentonville Library Foundation, The Mayor’s Book Club is debuting this summer with a panel discussion and book club discussion centered around a selected book.
The first book selection is Find Your Why: a Practical Guide for Discovering Your Purpose for You and Your Team by Simon Sinek, Peter Docker and David Mead. Readers and participants are encouraged to explore and identify their passion and purpose and may relate it to life experience, family, work, goals, service and values.
Community Event – Book Discussion Group
The second community event will include an engaging book discussion centered on the selected book and is open to the public. Participants will register in advance to reserve a free book and participate in virtual discussion via Zoom, with both an afternoon and evening session available. The book discussion conversation will be led by Mayor Stephanie Orman.
All books are sponsored by the Bentonville Library Foundation, available at the Bentonville Library for pickup and free to keep. Books are available on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last. Participants are encouraged to attend both sessions, even if they have not read the book.
With Start With Why, Simon Sinek inspired a movement to build a world in which the vast majority of us can feel safe while we are at work and fulfilled when we go home at night. Now, along with two of his colleagues, Peter Docker and David Mead, he has created a guide to the most important step any business can take: Find Your Why.
This easy-to-follow guide starts with the search for your personal why, and then expands to helping your colleagues find your organization's why. With detailed instructions on every stage in the process, the book also answer common concerns, such as: What if my why sounds like my competitor's? Can you have more than one why? And, if my work doesn't match my why, what do I do?
Whether you're entry level or a CEO, whether your team is run by the founder or a recent hire, these simple steps will lead you on a path to a more fulfilling life and long term success for you and your colleagues.
