Program Overview

The Read & Lead book club was introduced on the HSC campus in March 2008. It's an opportunity for students, staff, and faculty to discuss books focused on leadership or personal insight.

The Three Steps to Participating:

  1. Sign-up! Books will be limited to the first 20 people to sign up in the David L. Boren Student Union, Suite 300. HSC Student Affairs is open from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Be sure to sign up early, books often go very quickly. Due to the limited numbers of books, we request no more than two faculty/staff per department sign up. Decide is available for pickup.

Read and Lead #25: Decide by Steve McClatchy

(From Amazon): How to make better decisions and achieve your goals

What shapes a person's career and life, and defines them as a leader? Their decisions. We all want to be more productive and deliver our best results. But doing this effectively—and consistently over time—is a significant challenge. Managing it all is hard, and leading in today's hyper-paced world is even harder.

The good news is that leadership expert Steve McClatchy makes it easier. In Decide, McClatchy—who works with Fortune 1000 people every day to help them achieve outstanding levels of performance—shows you how to cut through the complexities and excuses to start realizing real gains simply by changing one thing: the way you make decisions. With McClatchy's help, you can quickly begin to:

  • Use the time you have each day to move your business and your life forward
  • Make decisions that yield better results
  • Waste less time, reduce stress and regain balance

Again and again, McClatchy has helped people learn for themselves how great decision-making habits yield a lifetime of accomplishments. Follow McClatchy's no-nonsense and practical approach, and you'll soon manage—and even lead—at your highest level of personal performance.
