We're Only Human 8 - Using Books to Create a Shared Culture of Learning
Host: Ben Eubanks
Guest: Zach Rubin, Co-Founder, PBC Guru
Books. They've been around pretty much forever, and that familiarity is one reason they are not as appreciated as some other learning tools. But don't be fooled--there's more than meets the eye. It's been said that reading one hour a day will make someone an international expert in their field in 5-7 years. While that exact figure may be up for debate, it's clear that reading is a powerful activity for self-development.
In this episode of We're Only Human, Ben Eubanks interviews Zach Rubin, cofounder of PBC Guru, a company that designs and delivers book club experiences for organizations looking to create a culture of shared learning. The discussion covers what books companies most often request, how to use books for supporting social learning, and a special free offer for We're Only Human listeners.
Whether you're a book nerd or not, this show is going to demonstrate that this fundamentally human activity, reading, has more value than you would imagine.
Special Offer: PBC Guru is offering to implement and manage a virtual book club with your company completely free for six months. Just visit http://pbc.guru and fill out the contact form mentioning you heard us on the "We're Only Human" podcast.
