In keeping with Wildacres Leadership Initiative's continuing efforts to open the doors of leadership development to everyone across the state, WLI is offering yet another way to access some of the recommended reading from the first two seminars of the current Friday Fellowship class.

All readings have been mentioned many times over the past several months in our social media posts.  Articles, videos, blogs are still available on our social media channels for all who wish to experience or re-experience portions of the Friday Fellowship learning journey to date.  Simply scroll through our Twitter feed, Google+ postings, or Facebook postings to get more insight from the authors and themes of these recommended readings.

Audiobooks are also a way to access these readings.  At least three of the recommended readings are in the Audible.com selection of audiobooks.  Audible offers a free 30-day trial period and generally a free trial audiobook.  Audible is also an Amazon company, so you may already have access to this service if you have an Amazon Prime account.

If you are interested in a possible Audible trial for a given book, click on title and review the audiobook details at the link:

Community: The Structure of Belonging -- author Peter Block

The Fifth Discipline: The Art & Practice of the Learning Organization -- author Peter Senge

Leadership and the New Science: Discovering Order in a Chaotic World-- author Margaret Wheatley
 

Just as it is not our intent to push fellow travelers toward one social media platform or another, it is not our intent to suggest a preference for one audiobook service over another.  It is our wish to make sure all know how to access this opportunity if they desire to join this journey through some of the readings.

Please make use of these online offerings at the times and places that best suit you.  While technology can sometimes make connecting at a personal level more difficult, it can also give us the chance to reflect and use traditional teachings in a new way.  We welcome all to join as we attempt to become better at both.


Wildacres Leadership Initiative is connected with Wildacres Retreat, Little Switzerland, NC.
