Book Club Guidelines
Sharing a book-reading experience can be inspiring, stimulating and sometimes challenging when there’s a diversity of opinions about topics or themes of the book. Our objective is to offer a welcoming and inclusive space where we can meet to discuss books in an environment where all opinions are respected, new friendships are made and existing ones are strengthened. To create a positive experience we ask all participants to follow these guidelines:
- Success depends on participation – collectively we should share ideas, ask questions, and engage others in conversation.
- Respectfully listen and hold space for others.
- Listen to understand, share your unique perspective, and speak honestly.
- Be positive, non-judgmental and open to new ideas.
- Critique ideas, not people. Remember to practice non-defensiveness during the discussion.
- Respect each other’s thinking and value their contributions. Everything happens through courageous conversations.
