Human Library


unjudge someone

The Human Library Organization is a global movement working to build spaces in the community for personal dialogue about issues that are often difficult, challenging, and stigmatizing.

The Human Library is a place where difficult questions are expected, appreciated, and answered. Readers ask questions and get answers from a human "Book.” These Books have volunteered their time to share their stories and answer questions. Some of the stereotype categories represented may include gender/sexuality, religion, lifestyle, family, and health.

Find out more about the Human Library and what is going on in Northern Indiana from the Human Library based in Fort Wayne.

Now, Discover Your Strengths

Book cover, Now Discover Your Strengths, by Michael Cunningham and Donald CliftonEffectively managing personnel--as well as one's own behavior--is an extraordinarily complex task that, not surprisingly, has been the subject of countless books touting what each claims is the true path to success. That said, Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton's Now, Discover Your Strengths does indeed propose a unique approach: focusing on enhancing people's strengths rather than eliminating their weaknesses. fully describes 34 positive personality themes the two have formulated (such as Achiever, Developer, Learner, and Maximizer) and explains how to build a "strengths-based organization" by capitalizing on the fact that such traits are already present among those within it.
