The Onward Book Club offers a year of monthly book club discussions for individuals and groups to grow your resilience in a supportive community.

Based on the 12-month curriculum in the books, Onward and The Onward Workbook, the book club will provide strategies and practices to help you deepen your resilience. 

With practical, informative, inspirational, and relevant activities and guidance, Onward is grounded in science, social science, and psychology. Peppered with Elena’s personal narratives, this book will undoubtedly change the way we think about emotions, stress, and our purpose as educators. 

The book focuses on the 12 habits that cultivate resilience and their correlating dispositions and provides a roadmap for how to feel more effective, more fulfilled, and happier at work.


Book club participants will:

  • Connect in community with people from all over the world
  • Identify powerful passages from the readings and integrate passages into your practice
  • Develop tools to cultivate your resilience from the 12 habits and dispositions


  • Small and whole group discussions
  • Guided practice
  • Exercises from The Onward Workbook (Please note that this is NOT a required text, but we highly recommend owning your own copy!)


  • Anyone seeking to deepen their resilience
  • Anyone who is reading Onward
  • Groups interested in using Onward as a text in their school or community
  • Anyone familiar with Onward who wants to go deeper into the text
