Dopamine Nation | Anne Lembke

Anne takes us on a technical journey through the neuropathways of addiction – some we know like alcohol, drugs, and sex – and some we don’t. The more discreet ones capture my attention – reading, exercise, and cold water. She addresses how we have built a society addicted to pleasure, and the balance between pleasure [...]

Leading without Authority | Keith Ferrazzi and Noel Weyrich

The authors start out by saying that leading without authority is the twenty first century organizational model. That’s a bold statement, and is further declared as the first book to codify a new set of work rules, specifically that co-elevation is the difference maker for organizations in their way forward. They explore 8 rules that [...]

The Difference Maker | John C. Maxwell

Disclaimer: I have been reading John Maxwell’s books as long as he has been writing them - and that’s a very long time.

Our Search for Belonging: How Our Needs to Connect Is Tearing Us Apart | Howard J Ross

Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist’s Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations | Thomas Friedman

I was drawn to the title of this book and was even more appreciative of the lessons offered. Mr. Friedman describes his book as "one giant column about the world today" and I agree. He aims to define the key forces driving change and how to cushion the impact. He covers Moore’s Law, meditation, [...]

Biased | Jennifer Eberhardt, PhD

As I opened this book, I was immediately captured by the science element of it. Dr. Eberhardt approaches Biased with brain science and story, a delightful learning combination. “Implicit bias is not a new way of calling someone a racist. You don’t have to be a racist at all to be influenced by it. Implicit bias [...]

The Outward Mindset | The Arbinger Institute

TED Talk: A Simple Way to Break a Bad Habit | Judson Brewer

Instead of a book this month, and because we have already shifted our worlds, I invite you to check out Dr. Brewer’s TED talk on habits. Trigger - Behavior - Reward is our path to a habit. This is locked in our brain, and although we started as survival, we are now using these habits to [...]
