HAYVN Book Group: Reinventing Social Change with author Nell Edgington

On Wednesday, November 10 at 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm, we’ll read and discuss Reinventing Social Change: Embrace Abundance to Create a Healthier and More Equitable World and be joined by the author Nell Edgington.

Reinventing Social Change is a critical roadmap for social change leaders who will lead the reinvention of our broken systems into ones that are much stronger, healthier and more equitable. It charts a path for nonprofit and philanthropic leaders to:

• Break free from limiting beliefs and restrictions
• Reclaim their power
• Kiss scarcity goodbye
• Attract financial abundance, and
• Mobilize their networks

What if instead of being exhausted, worn out, ground down, disillusioned, and depressed, you were energized and inspired by your important work? What if you were surrounded by endless numbers of people who wanted to and could move your work forward? What if money flowed easily and endlessly to you and your organization? What if the social change you envision came to fruition easily and joyfully?

This book will show you how to find your way to abundant social change.

HAYVN Book Group: You Have More Influence Than You Think by Vanessa Bohns

Join us for HAYVN’s monthly book group on Monday, October 18th, 2021 at 5:30 PM EST. We’ll read and discuss You Have More Influence Than You Think: How We Underestimate Our Power of Persuasion, and Why It Matters by Vanessa Bohns. The conversation will be hosted by Nancy Sheed of Sheed Communications. 

If you’ve ever felt ineffective, invisible, or inarticulate, chances are you weren’t actually any of those things. Those feelings may instead have been the result of a lack of awareness we all seem to have for how our words, actions, and even our mere presence affect other people.

In You Have More Influence Than You Think social psychologist Vanessa Bohns draws from her original research to illustrate why we fail to recognize the influence we have, and how that lack of awareness can lead us to miss opportunities or accidentally misuse our power.

HAYVN Book Group: Soundtracks by Jon Acuff

Join us for HAYVN’s monthly book group on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at 5:30 PM EST. We’ll read and discuss Soundtracks: The Surprising Solution to Overthinking by Jon Acuff. The conversation will be hosted by Nancy Sheed of Sheed Communications. 

In Soundtracks, Acuff offers a proven plan to change overthinking from a super problem into a superpower. When we don’t control our thoughts, our thoughts control us. If our days are full of broken soundtracks, thoughts are our worst enemy, holding us back from the things we really want. But the solution to overthinking isn’t to stop thinking. The solution is running our brains with better soundtracks. Once we learn how to choose our soundtracks, thoughts become our best friend, propelling us towards our goals.

It’s 1912. After a tragic event, Helen Fox—a factory worker living in New York’s tenements—attends her first suffrage meeting, quickly becoming seduced by the cause. Accepting a job offer from leader Harriot Stanton Blatch, Helen finds herself working alongside famous activists as she tries to change the world, afford the basics, and balance a disgruntled family back home when she marches to Washington, D.C. In a time when the obstacles for women— from any background—were insurmountable, Helen discovers her voice and dreams of equality in a male-dominated society.
