Book club discussion group with Mayor Stephanie Orman.

In collaboration with Bentonville Public Library (BPL) and sponsored by Friends of the Library, The Mayor’s Book Club includes a book club discussion centered around a selected book. 

The Spring book selection for 2023 is The Power of Positive Leadership: How and Why Positive Leaders Transform Teams and Organization and Change the World by Jon Gordon. 

Community Event – Book Discussion Group 

The 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 the in-person discussion at BPL. The book discussion conversation will be led by Mayor Stephanie Orman. 

All books are sponsored by the Friends of the Bentonville Library, available at the Bentonville Library for pickup and free to keep if you attend the event. If you are unable to attend, please return the book to BPL for others to enjoy. Books are available on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last. Participants are encouraged to attend the discussion group, even if they have not read the book.

Book Summary:

We are not positive because life is easy. We are positive because life can be hard. As a leader, you will face numerous obstacles, negativity, and tests. There will be times when it seems as if everything in the world is conspiring against you and your vision seems more like a fantasy than a reality. That's why positive leadership is essential! Positive leadership is not about fake positivity. It is the real stuff that makes great leaders great. The research is clear. Being a positive leader is not just a nice way to lead. It's the way to lead if you want to build a great culture, unite your organization in the face of adversity, develop a connected and committed team and achieve excellence and superior results.

Since writing the mega best seller The Energy Bus, Jon Gordon has worked and consulted with leaders who have transformed their companies, organizations and schools, won national championships and are currently changing the world. He has also interviewed some of the greatest leaders of our time and researched many positive leaders throughout history and discovered their paths to success. In this pioneering book Jon Gordon shares what he has learned and provides a comprehensive framework on positive leadership filled with proven principles, compelling stories, practical ideas and practices that will help anyone become a positive leader.

There is a power associated with positive leadership and you can start benefiting yourself and your team with it today.
