Books

Bolles, Richard Nelson. (2008). What Color is Your Parachute? 2009: A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career-Changers. Berkely, CA: Ten Speed Press. The #1 best-selling career book of all time, revised and updated to keep pace with today’s ever-changing job market.

Collins, Jim. (2001). Good To Great. New York, NY: HarperCollins Publishers. Based on a five-year research project, Good to Great answers the question: “Can a good company become a great company, and, if so, how?” True to the rigorous research methodology and invigorating teaching style of Jim Collins, Good to Great teaches how even the dowdiest of companies can make the leap to outperform market leaders the likes of Coca-Cola, Intel, General Electric, and Merck.

Covey, Stephen R. (1989). The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. New York, NY: Free Press. Stephen R. Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top-seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its fifteenth year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey exploring the question of whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answering some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.

Johnson, Spencer. (1998). Who Moved My Cheese? New York, NY: G.P. Putnam’s Sons. Most people are fearful of change because they don’t believe they have any control over how or when it happens to them. Since change happens either to the individual or by the individual, Spencer Johnson shows us that what matters most is the attitude we have about change. Who Moved My Cheese? takes the fear and anxiety out of managing the future and shows people a simple way to successfully deal with the changing times, providing them with a method for moving ahead with their work and lives safely and effectively.

Maxwell, John C. (2001). The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork. Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson. Building and maintaining a successful team is no simple task. Even people who have taken their teams to the highest level in their field have difficulty recreating what accounted for their successes. Is it a strong work ethic? Is it chemistry? What tools can you wrap your hands around to build or rebuild your team? John C. Maxwell shares the vital principles of team building that are necessary for success in your business, family, church, or organization.

Maxwell, John C. (1998). The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson. What would happen if a top expert with more than thirty years of leadership experience were willing to distill everything he had learned about leadership into a handful of life-changing principles just for you? It would change your life. John C. Maxwell has done exactly that in The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. He has combined insights learned from his thirty-plus years of leadership successes and mistakes with observations from the worlds of business, politics, sports, religion, and military conflict. The result is a revealing study of leadership delivered as only a communicator like Maxwell can.
