Book Review and Discussion Tuesday evening 12.13.11 at 7

Greetings All,

So a bestselling author and a humorist go into a bar…

We need to get serious about the need to “lighten up.” Yes, regardless of how your sales are tracking, investments maturing, love life or job search you need to lighten up and the authors of our book for this week detail the scientific and common sense reasons why.  The authors of this compelling work challenge us to reconfigure our thoughts about the value and place of levity throughout our lives. There is a proven correlation between levity and creativity.

Best-selling author, Adrian Gostick and humorist Scott Christopher draw upon scientific and personal experience in bringing appropriate humor and fun into our daily lives. They outline some companies that you would expect to hear about and others that may drop a bomb on you. The holidays can be a painful time for many depending on the circumstances and this book offers some exquisite ideas and well-deserved permission to lighten up during this season regardless of what it might throw at you. “Lighten Up” and read this book if you can’t make the group.

Serious Discussions Points on “”Levity:”

  • How can you “lighten up” when it just doesn’t “feel right?”

  • Shouldn’t the holidays be somber even?
  • Can “levity” really elevate your career, networking or job search?
  • Can “levity bolster personal and/or corporate profits?” How?
  • What companies do you think of upon hearing the term levity? Boeing?
