About

The MADI Book Club is for anyone wanting to read and discuss books based on personal development, career, culture, and leadership. It is a welcoming place where like-minded individuals can come together to discuss the book of the month (virtually).

We aim to create a community of people where all opinions are welcome, we foster curiosity, and learning opportunities are encouraged!

How it works

Start by joining the MADI Book Club Facebook group, where on the first of each month we share the book of the month, and give you the links to purchase a hard or soft copy.

 

The MADI Book Club Facebook group is also a place where you can discuss the book freely leading up to our virtual catch-up that will be held at 7pm on the last Wednesday of every month. Here we can have a robust discussion about what we loved, what didn't quite land, and how we are going to carry the learnings into our lives.

And of course, feel free to bring a wine!

Book of the month

October

F*** Being Humble

by Stefanie Sword-Williams

This month we chose to read "F*** Being Humble".

We picked it as the books themes mirror what our clients tell us they struggle most with,  which is knowing how to promote yourself and value what you bring to the table, without sounding arrogant or overpromising. We thinks it's going to be a great read!

We recommend buying from a local book store but if you can't, you can find it, via our link below. Available in hardcover, Kindle, and Audiobook.

About the book

Whether it is through our parents, our education, our bosses, our colleagues, or the media we consume, we are constantly told that being humble is essential to our professional success. It's often seen as distasteful or arrogant to shout about our achievements.

 

But in a modern workplace, where the conventional, steady, linear career path is becoming rarer and rarer, this advice seems ever-more obsolete.

 

In the age of flexible working and portfolio careers, it’s time to F*ck Being Humble.

With simple exercises, steps and real-life examples, this is a resource for your bedside table that you can come back to again and again, at any point in your career. Learn how to:

  • Know what you stand for

  • Stop hiding (even when you don’t realise you are)

  • Fully realise the power of networking

  • Know your self-worth

  • Play the money game and win

  • Manage your emotions at work

  • Take action and establish the right time to make the leap

  • Keep the momentum you’ve generated going and maintain that elusive work-life balance
     

Get ready to start taking charge of your own success.
