“Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty?” 

Come join us for our first Books Over Brunch to get some answers!  Pick up a copy of Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action by Simon Sinek on Amazon Smile and give back to the JLT.  We will have an open discussion over brunch on December 5th at 47 Scott.

Please sign-up via Digital Cheetah to participate. If you have any questions, email Alaina Krone at

start-with-why-simon-sinekIn this book, Sinek draws on a wide range of real-life stories and weaves together a clear vision of what it truly takes to lead and inspire. We hope you come to brunch with questions and comments about the book and what it means to be a leader. The Leadership focus will have three Books Over Brunch throughout the year, each covering a different book.

Common Reads is a new initiative through the Training Committee this year. Both the Leadership focus and Life focus have identified books that will provide an opportunity to learn and connect with other JL members. After reading each book there will be a guided discussion at Books Over Brunch. Through reading a book and participating in Books over Brunch you will receive one training/meeting credit.
