New Book and Learning Circles Set for Summer

Photo of the book cover of "Daring Greatly"Employee and Organization Development has announced its summer 2019 Book and Learning Circles. Employees are invited to participate in enriching conversations in a Book Circle, where attendees read a book and discuss as a group, or a Learning Circle, where participants view a video or read an article before discussing as a group.
— Book Circles involve reading a book over the course of three sessions. The first book, "Daring Greatly" by Brené Brown, works to dispel the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage. The second book is "Crucial Conversations" by Kerry Patterson and colleagues. A “crucial conversation” is defined as one in which the stakes are high, the participants have different perspectives/opinions and emotions run strong. The book focuses on mastering crucial conversations to get things done while building relationships.
— Learning Circles involve watching a video or reading an article and participating in a discussion during a single session. In the first learning circle, "Three Questions That Will Positively Change the World," Shola Richards introduces three transformative questions that will positively transform how we work, live and lead and a way to ensure that people stay committed to putting strategies into action. The second learning circle is "Listening to Shame" with Brené Brown, who humorously and vulnerably explores what can happen when people confront their shame head-on. To view a full description and to register, visit the Book and Learning Circles webpage at

She visited China, South America and Canada, among others, but her favorite places were Atlanta, Georgia, and Oakhurst, New Jersey, where she spent extended holiday seasons with her children and grandchildren. Ellis' coworkers, faculty and students fondly remember her cheerful disposition, quick wit and an ever-present sense of humor, which brightened her workplace and brought smiles to those around her. Her genuine concern for the department and the students, and the compassion with which she assisted everyone, made Ellis a cherished member of the Cal Poly community.
