If you are interested in growing for the sake of your family, community, or career – OR if you would like to help others as they are seeking to grow - don’t miss this chance to hear and share ideas with others on campus. 

This year the Wayne G. Basler Library will present a series of book talks entitled Leadership Lunch Break.  This brownbag series will feature five titles picked to fit the themes of leadership development laid out by Kouzes and Posner in The Leadership Challenge, the premiere book on leadership development.  The book talks will be led by John Grubb and will take place on Wednesdays at noon, in the library meeting room L226.
