Successful Women Think Differently: 9 Habits to Make You Happier, Healthier, and More Resilient
Successful Women Think Differently: 9 Habits to Make You Happier, Healthier, and More Resilient
By Valorie Burton
It is more of a coaching positive psychology book. It causes you to examine the excuses we make for ourselves and why we don’t achieve our goals we have set for ourselves, then points us in the right direction to achieve them in small chunks. Any book by Valorie Burton I have found to be inspiring, motivational and certainly achievable. Listening to her podcast, “Positively Psyched,” her three-minute YouTube video and reading her book has inspired me to pursue a coaching certification next spring.

The New Social Learning: Connect. Collaborate. Work.
By Tony Bingham and Marcia Conner
We’re all interested in integrating social learning components into what we do, but getting learners to adopt these new tools can be a challenge. This book is a great “how-to” guide that looks at the barriers to adoption and engagement with social learning platforms and provides practical advice on how to overcome them. [I’m] actively using this as a reference for several projects I’m currently working on.

Your Lion Inside: Tapping into the Power Within
By Kimberly Faith
This one has been dominating my reading list since I picked it up. It’s been a year and I haven’t put it down yet. I carry it with me. The author, Kim Faith, literally reached into the depths of my soul and helped me reflect and understand how my behaviors were limiting my success — personally and professionally. Then she offered a caring, guiding hand to help gradually shift my “self-talk” to a place that will drive me forward instead of restrain me.
