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 [...]

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 [...]

EYE OF THE STORM | Ray Williams

The subtitle of this book is 'how mindful leaders can transform chaotic workplaces'. I think his principles apply to chaotic 'times' just as well. Cue a pandemic.

TRIBE | Sebastian Junger

Two quotes to give you much to consider: “..as societies become more affluent they tend to require more, rather than less, time and commitment by the individual, and it’s possible that many people feel that affluence and safety simply aren’t a good trade for freedom.” “As affluence and urbanization rise...rates of depression and suicide [...]

THE INFINITE GAME | Simon Sinek

I have been searching for the words to explain the contrast between my love of playing volleyball and my love of the world of work - same in some ways, very different in others. This book summed it up for me - in very tangible ways. Mr. Sinek provides very clear examples of how [...]

SELF-LEADERSHIP | Andrew Bryant & Ana Lucia Kazan

"We are nouns, not verbs." Who we are is separate from what we do. Self-confidence is fueled by purpose and moderated by the ability to accept one's mistakes. The authors have created a dense, yet specific, path through self-leadership. There are a number of assessments along the way, designed to explore who you are, what [...]
