Each staff member reads a book which in one or another contributes to knowledge and know-how concerning our work, then we present one or two books per week in a short presentation to the team. In the discussion following the presentation, we reflect on what we heard and how we can use the information in the field.
So far our readings have deepened our knowledge immensely and were also a great team-building exercise. It is important to take a step back from our day-to-day business and broaden the horizon, only then can we come up with fresh ideas.
In the words of Nelson Mandela: Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world!
