Focusing on six words: Helping government do its job better

More on the Federal News Radio Book club… with FCW

with 2 comments

speed-of-trustYesterday, I mentioned the Federal News Radio Book Club — we are reading The SPEED of Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything by Stephen M.R. Covey.

We’re going to do the book club on Federal News Radio’s In Depth program with Francis Rose on Nov. 19. Yesterday, we had Rose on the Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris talking about the book club. (Hear that conversation here. MP3)

I’ve had a number of questions about the book club since it was announced yesterday.

One: How can I join the book club. Well — read the book. And send us question your comments and questions about the book.

  • Let us know your question before the show. Just leave a message on our new comment line: 877-936-8250. You can be anonymous if that works for you. We can then ask your question or play your comment on the air. (More info about how to contact us here.)
  • E-mail me at chris at
  • E-mail Francis at frose at

Two: How did you choose the book? We selected the book with Dave Wennergren, the deputy CIO at the Defense Department and a great thinker and reader. We’re going to keep Wennergren involved in the program — as much as he can be involved. But we’re going to have other feds and contractors involved. If you know good readers, let me know.

Finally, I mentioned that this idea started when I was over at Federal Computer Week. I’m very excited to say that FCW is going to run an excerpt of Covey’s book in the November 17 issue. FCW is also going to run a piece asking Wennergren about his interest in books and how they help him manage.

So… I hope you’ll join us for the book club… November 19 at 2p ET on Federal News Radio 1500 AM and
