    Liz VickersOur fearless leader Lisa Pomerantz was missed at our November 11th Business Book Club meeting where we discussed Boss Bitch by Nicole Lapin. We were in agreement there were some good take-aways although the language used throughout was sometimes distracting and unprofessional. Looking forward to next month's discussion led by Liz Vaz "No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power" by Gloria Feldt on Tuesday, December 11th!

            Lisa PomerantzThanks to Tina Labita for facilitating our June meeting. We learned that there are four parts to emotional intelligence: knowing and managing our own emotions; and recognizing other people's emotions and managing our relationships with them.

                Lisa PomerantzWe welcomed two new Moxxie Network members to our Club at our May meeting featuring a discussion of Drop the Ball by Tiffany Dufu facilitated by Liz Vaz. The consensus was that it was not really about dropping the ball, but finding better ways to discuss and agree on the equitable allocation of responsibilities at home and work. Join us next month as Tina Labita facilitates the discussion of Emotional Intelligence 2.0 by Travis Bradbury and Jean Graves.

                  Beth MeixnerThis is what I love about our book club - each of us finds pain or joy in reading them. But they ALL teach us something. Lisa Pomerantz loved this book and did a great job of facilitating. Liz Vickers said it was very much like a text book - and I couldn't agree more. That's probably why I didn't care for it. Thank goodness we are all different - it makes the world (and book club) interesting!!
