I made the commitment this year to read 24 books to improve myself professionally and personally. I thought it would be great to share a few of my recent and current reads with you that I have really been enjoying. This is part two, my first post can be found HERE.
This is what is sitting on my nightstand, in my book bag that I lug around, or sitting on the floor in the front seat of my car, sliding around every time I make a turn:
Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average and Do Work that Matters by Jon Acuff – I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to be anything more than average. Great sense of humor a great life changing ideas.
The 360 Degree Leader: Developing Your Influence from Anywhere in the Organization by John Maxwell – 1/3 of the way through this book, and I enjoy the practical suggestions on how to lead from any position in an organization. Powerful stuff.
Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dwek – what is the difference between a “fixed” mindset and a “growth” mindset? Apparently, it’s everything.
Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcom Gladwell – You brain is taking in more information than we are typically aware of. I’m only in a few pages, interesting idea.
The Catalyst Leader: 8 Essentials for Becoming a Change Maker by Brad Lomenick – A great source of information, targeting the “new generation of leaders” but applicable for anyone, in line with the ideas from the Catalyst Leadership Event and the Catalyst Leadership Podcast.
3 out of 5 titles I am reading are one word titles…what does that even mean?
