Nowadays I hardly find my friends spending their leisure time reading books. A few months back a team of about 10 of us got together to write a proposal. At the end of the proposal each one of us were given a book to read and then share it with others. The book that I got was ‘Reaching your Potential’ by Norman Vincent Peale. I started reading this book only a couple of days back and I was hooked on to it. The book talks about being positive and how the moment we believe in ourselves we are able to do the impossible.  I really loved the book and I felt it was pretty practical too.

To inculcate the reading habit one of the business unit at CI has implemented the program ‘Read the Book. Share the Knowledge’. Every week each person from the business unit reads a particular chapter from the book and shares the significant information with others. While some people may say that we are forcing people to read, we have definitely noticed a positive change. Teams have started implementing what they are reading. Though it is a small change, it is definitely a significant change.

Does your organization have something like this? If yes please share it so that we can all take advantage of such best practices.
