Where do I sign up for the Facebook private group? What's that all about?
The Leadership Essentials Community Group for the John Maxwell “The Leader’s Greatest Return” book club on Facebook will officially get started on March 27 – one week before the book club kicks off! But feel free to go ahead and join now! The group is optional for people who want more daily interaction and community. Be sure to read the community rules and remember to keep conversations on topic with no soliciting. We’d love to have you be a part of this group!
I'm already part of a book club at work or with friends. How can we do this study with you?
All of the online activities associated with this study are optional. You can still structure your group like a book club using the free downloads we’ve provided and the study materials in the book. Feel free to follow our study calendar and meet every week or set up your own schedule and go at your group’s pace. Check out our deep discount on bulk orders, too!
Is this something I could do via Skype? I am looking for a book club to do with my friends , but we are in different cities.
Absolutely! The weekly videos will be available online so you could get on Skype (or Google Hangouts, iChat, or whatever), watch them at the same time, then talk and process through the questions and each week’s reading together. We love this idea! What an awesome way to bond with friends across the miles.
What other ways can we engage with the online participants?
We will host online chats throughout the book club to talk about each week’s video lesson! These are hosted by a moderator/small group leader and are FREE for all participants.
I don't live in the USA and want to do this book club. How can I obtain the materials please?
Anyone with Internet access can watch the videos for FREE week by week, and follow along with our weekly emails. For the book and workbook, we recommend checking with your local bookstore or online retailer (like Amazon Canada or Amazon UK).
What communication can I expect to receive? I don't want to be inundated with emails.
After sign up, you’ll receive an email a week as you’re going through the book club. We’ll keep you updated on the assigned reading for the week and where to watch your companion videos. With your registration you will also start to receive the weekly Leadership Essentials newsletter. You can unsubscribe from any of these at any time.
Share The Leader’s Greatest Return book club on social media and be sure to invite your friends! We hope you will consider starting a book club, recommending this book club to your manager, or leading your peers or employees through the book club right from your office! Of course, if you're on your own you will love doing the book club with our online community too! We can't wait!
