BELLINGHAM – Western Washington University’s Small Business Development Center will co-host the “Hot100BizBook Club” from 10 a.m.-noon on Wednesday, Oct. 24 in the Fireside Room of the Fairhaven Branch of the Bellingham Public Library.
The book club is a free event with a goal of providing attendees with ideas and advice from popular business books and coming away with at least one solid idea to increase their business’s revenues or profits by at least $100,000.
The featured book at this meeting is “Good Boss, Bad Boss” by Robert I. Sutton. Sutton relates the importance of how bosses behave and lays the groundwork for coaching bosses on how to be great while avoiding the pitfalls leading to employee hostility and relation problems. Most employees agree that the most stressful part of their job is their immediate supervisor. There is a wide gap between how good a boss could be and how bad a boss often is.

Orlandi leads the Clique University and Change Leadership practice, focusing primarily on helping clients engage with tools and solutions and use them for better results. His expertise includes employee engagement, change management and leadership, and organizational development and behavior.
The Hot100BizBook Club meet once per quarter. The event is co-sponsored by Hot100Business, NW Business Development, WWU’s Small Business Development Center, Bellingham Public Library, Clique Studios and Village Books.
