Member’s Only Book Club
August 6 at 10 a.m. EST
This group just for Grow & Lead members will meet quarterly on Zoom to allow for participation from all areas of the U.P. The book selections will be voted on each quarter by those in the group.
In August 2021, we’ll be discussing The Negativity Remedy.
About the book:
We’re all pretty nice people, right? It’s all those other people who are the problem.
Sure, occasionally we’re tempted to gossip or indulge in a little justified road rage… or snap at a spouse… or scream at our kids… but if everyone else would just get with the program, we wouldn’t be this way!
Maybe the trouble isn’t with all those other people who aggravate us. Maybe we’re the problem — specifically, the way we react to inconveniences, accidents, and just plain everyday life with negative words, thoughts and actions. Because the truth is, when we stop focusing on how we’re being affected and start responding in kind ways, that’s when something remarkable happens: we actually feel happier ourselves.
With humor, compassion and encouragement, Nicole Phillips draws on scientific research and real-life examples to help us recognize unhelpful negative thought patterns, show kindness toward others even when we don’t feel like it, and discover how one little change actually changes everything.
