There is nothing like a good, old fashioned book chat to remind you that we live in the best community anywhere.
Over the past two weeks, I have been meeting with Dobbs Ferry parents in neighborhood homes to discuss Originals - How Nonconformists Move the World by Adam Grant. What a great experience!
Thank you to our gracious hosts and to those who will be hosting the upcoming chats. I am also grateful for our parents and community members who have come out to share their thinking and insights. We have talked about creative destruction, leadership themes, strategic procrastination, birth order and siblings, speaking truth to power and lots of other ideas about how we can create the conditions that we want and value in our schools.
Each book chat is rich and unique because of the participants' perspectives. I find this fascinating and exhilarating. I am hoping that even more parents and community members choose to engage with me as we discuss the themes in the text. If you can’t find the time to read ….. Watch the TED Talk or read the New York Times Op Ed piece.
