BOOKS:

In Changing on the Job, Jennifer Garvey brings new perspective and insights from her experience as a leadership researcher who's focused upon adult development, along with her extensive experience as an executive coach.  This book covers a lot of ground, but fundamentally looks at ways we as individuals can transform ourselves, our organizations, and the world around us.

 

The book Nonviolent Communication, by Marshall Rosenberg offers an invaluable way for communicating more effectively that most of us have never learned.  It's become the basis for many required management and leadership programs, where the language we use, and how we listen and respond are pivotal in changing the ways we perceive (and are perceived) in all of our relationships.  This book is also the basis for many mediation and negotiation schools of thought.

 

The book Mindsight by Dr. Siegel explores the subject of interpersonal neurobiology, delving into the neuroscience behind relationships, human development, and provides amazing cases studies about individuals and their capacity to change behaviors, learn new skills, and to influence the lives of those around them.

“…after a while you realize you don’t want to keep that old static identity. You want to move the pivot of your present, from this thing you think is you, into this meeting with the future, with the people you serve, with your family, with your loved ones…and it’s when you forget yourself where all kinds of astonishing things can happen.”
