Leadership Lunch & Learn - Book Review Series


The SR-PLN PSD Committee is teaming up with the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture to host a monthly Leadership Lunch and Learn webinar in 2023. The Leadership Lunch and Learn Book Review Series, features leadership experts from across the southern region. All webinars will be hosted on the last Wednesday of every month at 1:15 – 2:00 PM (EST) / 12:15 PM – 1:00 PM (CST). Webinars will be hosted and recorded using Zoom webinar, and recording links will be shared.

Presenters will review a different leadership development book each month. As busy professionals, we often hear different leadership development books mentioned or quoted, and we always intend to read the books, but we never get the time to do so. The Book Review series will give you the opportunity to hear the cliff notes version of many popular leadership development books.

The first book review will be on Good to Great by Jim Collins reviewed by Dr. Julie Robinson, associate professor-leadership, Arkansas Extension on January 25, 2023 from 1:15 – 2:00 PM (EST) / 12:15 – 1:00 PM (CST).
