What We’re Reading This Fall
Reading for professional development doesn’t have to be boring – in fact, there are many interesting books out today that don’t feel like educational reads. We encourage our employees to read as a way to learn and grow in both their professional and personal lives. Here are a few recommendations for must-read books from Howell staff:
1. Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win
by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin
“This book includes leadership mind-sets and principles that enabled Navy SEAL leaders Jocko Willink and Leif Babin to overcome some of the most difficult missions in the Battle of Ramadi and details how these principles apply to the business world. Extreme Ownership has changed my life and I encourage all current and future leaders to read it.”
– Marcus Pickworth, Project Manager
2. Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
by Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D.
“This book has changed my life! Learn how to embrace the “growth mindset”, recognize when you are facing a “fixed mindset”, and then how to change your thought process. We are all capable of improving ourselves and achieving better results than we tend to give ourselves credit for. All it takes the right attitude and a desire to put in the time and work to make it happen.”
– Roger Smith, Vice President
3. The Patient Will See You Now: The Future of Medicine is in Your Hands
by Eric J. Topol, M.D.
“Learn from one of the nation’s top physicians about the changes in the medical field and the future of healthcare with the integration of technology and the fading mentality of “doctor knows best”. Whether you focus on the medical market or not, the future of healthcare affects us all and is a definite must-read!”
– Megan McIver, BD Manager
4. Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose
by Tony Hsieh
“An incredibly enjoyable read about the success of a company focused on corporate culture and concentrating on delivering a better customer experience.”
– Todd Berry, Vice President
