Summer Reading

I’ve chosen two books that I believe are perfect for summer reading. Both books are not your typical heavy business or career read;  and the best thing – they  can be read in a very short space of time. Isn’t that what summer reading is all about?

For the Manager:  The Little Book of Coaching – Motivating People To Be Winners

Ken Blanchard, Author of the One Minute Manager, co-authored the Little Book of Coaching with Don Shula, former coach of the Miami Dolphins.

This is the perfect beach side book as it’s written  so you can easily navigate through it and pick up at any point. It’s a series of key quotes and statements that associate with their acronym: C.O.A.C.H.  This book has many inspiring ideas and stories that can be applied to both personal and business. I believe it is an essential read for anyone in a leadership or management role.

Career Reading: Johnny Bunko – The Last Career Guide You’ll Ever Need

New York Times best-selling author, Daniel Pink  wrote this book in Manga format, so end to end this book should take no more than an hour. It’s visual format and strong messaging serves as the ultimate guide to take charge of your career that may actually help you get unstuck and start doing what really makes you happy and fulfilled.  This book carries a universal message applicable to both those deeply into their career as well as for those just beginning.

Happy reading!

  1. Thank you for posting these. I’m a huge fan of Daniel Pink’s “Drive” and had heard of his Manga book a while ago but have not read it yet. I’ll search it out now…
