There are so many different ways to continue to learn in today’s world: online courses, different apps, webinars, trainings, etc. The internet has created a culture of continuous learning at our fingertips. One of the best ways to learn, though, still comes in the classic form of books – either physical or e-books.
We at DynamicHR love to read a good book (and I personally love physically turning the pages and using cute bookmarks). We’re sharing a few of our favorites on the blog today along with a couple of resources of what others recommend when trying to grow your business, background, or knowledge!
- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey: Our Benefits Manager, BreAnna, recommends this one! She says, “I first discovered this book when I was assigned to read it in a college course. Within reading the first few pages, I was invested in it. You know the saying “food for your soul”? Well, this is a book that fed me. Covey’s 7 habits are relatable in both professional and personal lives. I feel that anyone can benefit from the enrichment that this book has to offer. To this day, I find myself picking this book up every so often and reading it again.”
- Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business by Gino Wickman: This is one that our top execs recommend – our CEO, President, and VP. It’s one that has helped them view their company in a different light and has changed their mindset on how a company should be run. It’s a great read for when you feel that your business has become stagnant, and you’re ready to push up to the next level.
- How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie: This is probably one of my favorites to recommend. I love this book for a lot of reasons, but one of the best is the tiny nuggets of information he offers on creating lasting, memorable relationships. I also love that it has stayed a top reference for creating relationships even after all these years, which is a testament to its universal truth. Relationships are what most businesses are built on, and if you can’t keep your clients like you would your friends, then you won’t succeed.
