Good news and bad news, Avid Readers. The bad news: you missed this event. The good news: we have a recording of it on the ever-growing Avid Bookshop YouTube channel, so you can watch on demand whenever you'd like by clicking here.
Employers, employees, and those seeking a job change will not want to miss this incredible opportunity to hear in real time from speaker and bestselling author Kim Scott. Avid Bookshop is thrilled to host a day-of-publication launch for Kim Scott's brand-new book, Just Work: Get Sh*t Done, Fast and Fair. This is a virtual event taking place on Tuesday, March 16, 2021, from 7pm - 8pm EST via Zoom.
To attend this event, purchase a ticket (or select a no-cost ticket). You will receive a Zoom link via email one hour before the event begins. Please purchase your tickets early, as ticket sales will be cut off at 7pm on 3/16/21. We have 3 ticketing options:
- Pay-What-You-Can ticket & book (Just Work: Get Sh*t Done, Fast and Fair) bundle
- Pay-What-You-Can ticket only (no book)
- No-cost ticket to get Zoom event access only (no book)
Please support Athens, Georgia's only independent bookshop (and Kim Scott, of course!) by purchasing the book from Avid Bookshop here.
Invite your coworkers to attend with you--you'll have a lot to talk about afterward, we promise. (We know one nationwide company that's having a huge number of employees attend, and some of them already set aside time to have a book club discussion about the book later in the spring.)
ABOUT THE BOOK:
We—all of us—consistently exclude, underestimate, and underutilize huge numbers of people in the workforce even as we include, overestimate, and promote others, often beyond their level of competence. Not only is this immoral and unjust, it's bad for business. Just Work is the solution.
Just Work is Kim Scott's new book, revealing a practical framework for both respecting everyone’s individuality and collaborating effectively. This is the essential guide leaders and their employees need to create more just workplaces and establish new norms of collaboration and respect.
