A Message from our President
In December, we asked for suggestions of books or articles you have read that helped you or your organization and, as always, you rose to the occasion. You shared with us titles that focus on specifics within an organization (fundraising strategies), aspects of ourselves (how to be a good leader), and issues in our community and world. We appreciate your input and your willingness to encourage others in our sector to continue to learn and evolve. Please read our article to discover some wonderful suggestions from our readers. You can also find them on our website.
We'd like to take a moment to congratulate Tony Sprinkle, the new Operations Manager of The Mallarmé Chamber Players. Mr. Sprinkle started in his new role this month and is already off to a fantastic start.
We'd also like to announce a new search. Right Sharing of World Resources is searching for a new General Secretary (Executive Director). Please see detailed information about this position on the searches page of our website.

Survey Results: A Suggested Reading List
It’s January: an opportunity to adopt a fresh outlook, a push to start doing something we haven’t done before (but meant to), and a chance to pay attention to what will make this a good year ahead. However, with cold weather outside, many of us hunker down inside, waiting for spring to come before we really embrace change…but we don’t have to sit idly by and hold out for warm weather to begin our transformations. We can use this time to gather knowledge and begin our year better, more prepared, and ready for what will come by reading some of the books and articles recommended by our colleagues. These texts were meaningful to them and, quite possibly, good resources for you as well.
If you didn’t respond to the survey, but have a book or article you’d like to tell us about, send us the information at info@CapabilityCompany.com. We’ll post it on our Recommended Reading webpage with other book suggestions sent in by our ezine readers.

- Linchpin: Are you Indispensible? – This book by Seth Godin provides a thought provoking perspective on our current world, how we got here and what we can do to make a significant difference in the world that impacts us and that we can, if we so choose, impact as ‘linchpins’.
- The Speed of Trust – The One Thing That Changes Everything – This book by Stephen M. R. Covey delves into the importance of trust as the bottom-line for any successful individual, company or organization.
Bottom Line: So, on a cold night this month, settle into a comfortable chair with a cozy blanket, and start reading. You’ll be on your way in your personal or professional evolution before the snow melts!
