  • Give and Take

    Adam M. Grant

    Explains how networking and leadership skills are subject to the professional interaction styles of takers, matchers, and givers, and how these personalities dramatically shape success rates.

    Gotta say, I'm pretty flattered every time asks me if I've read @AdamMGrant book Give and Take. Good guy. Good book. http://t.co/82Tzhsk6TN

  • Turn the Ship Around!

    L. David Marquet

    Outlines a model of leadership designed to overcome poor morale, low performance, and high turnover while building engaged, healthy teams.

    @Penelope_Fay Check out @ldavidmarquet's book Turn This Ship Around. He has first hand experience that validates your hunch

  • Start with why

    Simon Sinek

    Suggesting that successful businesspeople and companies share a common inspiration that motivates them to perform beyond standard levels, an anecdotal reference explains how to apply the author's principles of "why" to everything from working culture to product development. A first book.

    Proud to know my work helps those I admire. Start With Why is on Chairman of the Joint Chief's 2012 reading list. http://t.co/V4VOn1YZ

  • Man's Search for Meaning

    Viktor E. Frankl

    A prominent Viennese psychiatrist before the war, Viktor Frankl was uniquely able to observe the way that both he and others in Auschwitz coped (or didn't) with the experience. He noticed that it was the men who comforted others and who gave away their last piece of bread who survived the longest - and who offered proof that everything can be taken away from us except the ability to choose our attitude in any given set of circumstances. The sort of person the concentration camp prisoner became was the result of an inner decision and not of camp influences alone. Only those who allowed their inner hold on their moral and spiritual selves to subside eventually fell victim to the camp's degenerating influence - while those who made a victory of those experiences turned them into an inner triumph. Frankl came to believe man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. This outstanding work offers us all a way to transcend suffering and find significance in the art of living.
