A Simple Collection of Best Reads


In our work with teams and individuals, the importance of better understanding ourselves and others is key to building strong relationships. It’s important to always be learning, so in that spirit here are a few reads that we highly recommend:

    1. “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey
      Stephen R. Covey’s classic distills timeless wisdom into seven lifelong practices for building a successful, fulfilling life. For over 25 years it encouraged each of us to focus on character, integrity, and being human.
    2. “Start with Why” by Simon Sinek
      In 2009, Simon Sinek gave the talk “How great leaders inspire action” to an audience of 50 people in a small room at TEDxPugetSound, which quickly became the second most-watched talk on TED.com. This book inspires each of us to start with our why and re-examine our what and how.
    3. “Questions are the Answer” by Hal Gregersen
      Hal Gregersen suggests that questions are important because they control what you focus on: What are you grateful for? Excited about? This book encourages us to exploit questions that can provide insights that might have been unexplored.
    4. “Indistractable” by Nir Eyal
      Nir Eyal’s book ‘Indistractable’ followed his bestseller ‘Hooked’ which focused on how to build habit-forming products – think Facebook, Instagram, Uber, et al; Indistractable focused on how to control our attention and life…in a hooked economy.
    5. “Story Like You Mean It” by Dr. Dennis Robelo
      Dennis Robelo reminds us that we each have a unique story to share, a mixture of lived experiences-planned and unplanned-that can be shared by connecting the ‘blue dots’ of our life to create cohesive interest when shared concisely.
