Don't Forget: Introducing the Parkville Rotary Book Club 
This is an invitation to read a leadership or personal development type book & discuss with your fellow community leaders at Rotary.  We will discuss for 10-15 minutes or so after the meeting on Friday 8/13/21 & someone else can pick the next book. 
So come with ideas...  No need to RSVP, we’re going to keep this very informal.  Our book for this first meeting is Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek, available on Audible, approximately 8 hours. 
About Sinek, from Amazon: “Simon Sinek, an unshakable optimist, is the author of the bestselling book Start with Why, which challenged traditional assumptions about how great leaders and great companies inspire people. He has presented his ideas to Fortune 100 companies and small start-ups; to nonprofits and members of Congress; to foreign ambassadors and the highest levels of the U.S. military, among many others. His TEDTalk based on Start with Why is the second most popular video of all time on He lives in New York City.” 
About Leaders Eat Last also from Amazon, regarding his search for why some teams pull together & others don’t: “The answer became clear during a conversation with a Marine Corps general. ‘Officers eat last,’ he said. Sinek watched as the most junior Marines ate first while the most senior Marines took their place at the back of the line. What's symbolic in the chow hall is deadly serious on the battlefield: Great leaders sacrifice their own comfort--even their own survival--for the good of those in their care.” This is part of my focus to reconnect with each other after a long COVID hiatus. 
I hope you’ll join us.   
Scott Walterbach, President of Parkville Rotary
