Better Best Practices

By BetterBookClub

Leaders Maintain an Active Profile - "Do as I do" tends to be better strategy than"Do as I say". When company leaders build their bookshelf, update their reads, and follow team members, productive activity is more likely to be replicated throughout the organization.

Leaders Regularly Recognize Participation - "If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?" When it comes to building good habits, what is recognized and applauded regularly is often repeated.

The Club Champion is NOT on the Leadership Team - The higher the club champion sits on the org chart, the lower the chances of success. The role of champion only takes about 2-4 hours per month, and is most often successfully led by a team member from within the organization.

The Club Library Includes an Abundant and Broad Range of Titles - The number of titles in club library should be abundant, and the diversity of titles should be broad. A good rule of thumb is to achieve a ratio of at least 10 to 1 in terms of titles to users (minimum 200 approved titles). 

Rewards for Reading are Aggressive - Adjust your company rewards to reflect your passion for growth in the organization. The difference will likely amount to no more than a rounding error on your books, but make a marked and forever difference for your team. 

Speaking of Rewards, BetterBookClub now has "built in" point recommendations on ALL Titles. You approve the books, we'll set your values!
