March's Book:

The Confidence Code:  The Science and Art of Self-Assurance-What Women Should Know *

By: Katty Kay & Claire Shipman

Confidence. We know it when we see it or think we do. And we want it for ourselves. The authors of the New York Times bestseller Womenomics deconstruct this essential, elusive, and misunderstood quality and offer a blueprint to bring more of it into our lives.  Does confidence come from our genes or can we learn it? Is it best demonstrated by bravado or is there another way to be confident? Is confidence more critical for success than competence? Why do so many women, even the most successful, seem to struggle with feelings of self-doubt? 

Inspiring, insightful, and persuasive, The Confidence Code shows that by acting on our best instincts and by daring to be authentic, women can feel the transformative power of a life on confidence.

Ask your favorite local bookstore and library for availability or purchase the print or Kindle edition*

  • Do I have to read the book to attend?
  • Not at all. Before the event, you'll receive an executive summary and a helpful discussion guide for the book. Reading the book is great, but is not required. The roundtables are about discussing ideas, experiences, and best practices related to the book and the topic.

  • How are books selected?
  • Book recommendations come directly from members of the Thrive! community. If you have a book that's a great business read, suggest it! Even if your book is not chosen for the next roundtable, your name and recommendation will be featured on the official Thrive! Reading List sent to everyone via email. Share your recommendation.

  • I have copies of business books I'm done with, can I share them?
  • Absolutely! Bring your treasures to any Thrive! event and donate them to the lending library. At the end of the year, the Chamber will donate any books without a home. This is a great way to share books and materials that have helped you in your career. Please only share books you don't expect returned.
  • When is the next roundtable?
  • There will be a Business Book Roundtable May 18, 2017, 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. at the C. Burr Artz Library in the Community Room.
