Teaser Tuesday

Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us, Seth Godin

"Imagine two classrooms with similar teachers. One has fifteen students; the other, thirty-two. Which group gets a better education?"

"Great leaders don't try to please everyone."

I'm reading this book on the recommendation of a friend, and I'm not very far into it. But so far, it's about leadership, looking at things differently, and recognising that the world is changing fast, so we need to change with it.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be ReadingAnyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I attended a conference where Mr. Godin spoke. He was so inspirational. I was intrigued by his discussion on social media. I purchased the book, but haven't gotten to it yet. I'm glad you like it.

Thanks for reminding me this is a book I need to read. Don't know why I've put it off. It's gotten some really good reviews (among people I know who've recommended it.)

@Kari: I just barely started it, but so far, so good!

@Kittie: I had to be reminded, too.

I haven't heard of this, but as a teacher and manager of my department, I think I need to pick it up. Thanks!

Su said...

Oh, yeah, definitely a good one for you!

"His mother had been in a loony bin too, it turned out and he couldn't bear to be reminded of it."

"Otherwise, the staff reasoned, we would all turn up the volume on our nuttiness, and the staff would lose control."

[from Girl, Interrupted]

sounds like an interesting book.

Su said...

That's brilliant-- must read that one!

Let me know how the book is! I just started a school super counseling class and am super-interested in the topic!
