We encourage our team members to maintain healthy reading habits, knowing that books are some of the most powerful developmental tools available to an ambitious professional. These are a few of the most popular titles on our Legit Events and Solutions reading list:
• “The Power of Now,” by Eckhart Tolle: Goal-oriented professionals tend to live in the future. This isn’t a bad thing, but it does have some downsides – one of which being that we forget to stop and smell the proverbial roses while on the path to achievement. Tolle’s book reminds us that the journey matters at least as much as the destination, and that taking satisfaction from the effort makes the reward that much sweeter.
• “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable,” by Patrick Lencioni: Collaboration is a Legit Events and Solutions principle, which means we also place a high premium on quality leadership. By showing what not to do when it comes to leading others, Lencioni illustrates the right way to get things done – by nurturing an empowering team dynamic that gets results.
• “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” by Robert Kiyosaki: There are many lessons that one can glean from this book, but one of the most important to us is not to worry about making mistakes. Mistakes are how people learn. Any time something doesn’t go the way we plan, we learn a valuable lesson and then keep moving forward.
It’s easy to take books for granted, but even in the digital age they are still among the best ways to accelerate our careers. For more reading suggestions, follow Legit Events and Solutions on Twitter.
