Here are some recent books I’ve read. ¬†I firmly believe that “leaders are readers” and we owe it to ourselves to immerse ourselves in other people’s thoughts and feelings. ¬†I listen to books on Audible when I am in the car, and I read a few pages every morning out of a paperback. ¬†Sometimes I even read a few pages in bed at night! ¬†I am very much okay with reading multiple books at once as each book tackles an issue in a different way. ¬†I draw my insights from many different areas, but I assure you that recent books I’ve read very much developed me into the coach I am today! ¬†In addition to these self-help and personal productivity works, I do manage a light book-club read each month.
