Gather a bunch of teammates.
Read a chapter or two per week.
Get together once a week and follow a guided discussion with the author.
Reading the book is encouraged, but who are we to tell you what to do? You can consider this the world’s first guilt-free book club!
We’ve also developed a “Reduced Reading Path” to help busy teams keep the commitment to about 20 minutes of reading or listening per session.
More titles will come soon – drop your email below if you want to be the first to know when one launches!
Pretty great actually—thanks so much for asking! We hope you’re having a great day as well.
Book Club sessions are super easy and streamlined!
A single log-in is all you need for your entire team of up to 20 participants. Simply follow the interactive module which includes videos, discussion questions, optional games and get-to-know-yous, and a few surprises along the way.
Book Clubs are able to be self-led just by following the module. If you’d like to inquire about having one of our Optimist Instructors facilitate the Book Clubs for your organization, get in touch with our Experiences Team.
A single Book Club purchase is intended to accommodate groups of up to 20. For much larger groups, please purchase multiple Book Clubs.
We’ve test-driven Book Club with groups of all sizes, from tight-knit teams to sprawling organizations. Here’s what we found:
For small teams or businesses:
Got less than 20 participants? One Book Club’s got you covered. You can host your Book Club and include up to 20 people. Simple as that.
For medium to large organizations:
Here’s where we suggest: one Book Club per core business unit, division, or team. Ideally, you want one Book Club for each group of 20 people.
We’ve seen larger organizations arrange Book Clubs within and across different departments – how it is configured can lead to some of the best serendipity across your team.
If you’re part of a larger organization and curious about how our enterprise Book Club options might work for you, get in touch with our Experiences Team! Our team can’t wait to chat and help you find the best fit.
Each session takes one hour and we recommend having one session per week. For reading, we also include our Reduced Reading Guide, which can cut your reading (or listening) time to ~20 minutes per week.
We’ve still got you covered with live online class on The Infinite Game.
You have access to the on-demand content for one year from date of purchase.
The content is all on-demand and is easily able to be completed by your whole team by simply following the module and on-screen prompts.
If you’d like to have one of Simon’s Master Trainers facilitate your book club, reach out to us at [email protected]!
Yes! Give us your email and we’ll send you a one-pager to help you make your case, as well as an excerpt of The Infinite Game .
Snacks are very personal but if you want some suggestions, Simon’s top three snacks are kettle corn, a bowl of cereal, and chocolate-covered almonds (dark chocolate—always dark chocolate)!
Bond your team with an interactive learning journey through the ideas introduced in The Infinite Game. Together, your team will learn the key lessons from the book through exclusive videos and discussions from Simon, plus some fun games to help unite your group.

A spark is something quite small and, by itself, not very powerful. But a spark has the ability to ignite. An idea is like a spark; alone it is just a set of words, but it too can ignite. A great idea can inspire others to dream bigger. Let us all work together to ignite something greater than ourselves.
Let us all be a Spark of Optimism.
