Well-Read Book Club

Thrive hosts a monthly book club that gives state employees an opportunity to connect with others and learn about well-being topics in a unique way. The books that are selected focus on one or more of the essential elements of well-being: career/purpose, social, financial, physical, community, and emotional.  Book club members must procure a copy of the book on their own (either by purchasing it or checking it out from their library), read the book on their own time and meet for about 45 minutes once a month during lunch to discuss the assigned reading. We have conference-call capabilities to accommodate employees who are not in the Oklahoma City area.

The books the book club have read are:

  • Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think by Brian Wansink
  • The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg
  • Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth about Your Weight by Linda Bacon

The next session starts in April and we will read and discuss Leading with Emotional Courage by Peter Bregman.
