Bookmark This! Your Fall Business Reading List

reading, reading list, learning, engagement, conference, Fall

Summer is winding down. The kids are back in school. And fall conference season is right around the corner. I don’t know about you, but I tend to read more fun, lighthearted books during the summer months. Then I break out the business books in the fall.

So, I’ve been looking for recommendations for my business book list. Personally, I think I’m off to an awesome start. Here are a few books I have set aside:

The Pivot” by Lori Michele Leavitt. This book focuses on helping leaders drive organizational change and achieve momentum. I can’t think of a more timely subject. Organizations and their leaders are being asked to pivot constantly. Sometimes by design. Other times because it’s necessary for business survival. One of the things I like about this book is that it includes a Pivot/Aligned Momentum Assessment.

Humans@Work” is a compilation of essays from human resources professionals on the value of people in the workplace. It includes writing from a couple of my favorites – Jeff Nally and Shelly Trent. And when you purchase this book, a portion of the proceeds benefit the SHRM Foundation, the research arm of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).

A few months ago, I interviewed Pandit Dasa about leadership and mindfulness. We met in person during the WorkHuman Conference (pioneered by Globoforce) and he was very kind to give me a copy of his book, “Urban Monk”. And yes, this book is about exactly what the title implies, being a monk in New York City. I’ve been looking for the perfect moment to start reading this one and I believe up at 37,000 feet without any mobile devices will be the place.

Now, I must admit that I rarely re-read books, but one I’m planning to read a second time is Steve Browne’s “HR on Purpose”. Steve is the executive director of HR at LaRosa’s Pizza and a SHRM board member. I had the opportunity to read Steve’s book prior to publication. Now, that’s it’s been on the bookstore shelves for a few months, I’m going to pick it up again. This book is focused on everyday human resources and how to be engaged with the profession.

I think my reading list will keep me busy for a while. I’m curious. What’s on your fall business reading list?
