I grew up in a family of readers. Books were valued for what they taught us and the ability to transport us to other worlds and see others’ perspectives. Even today, when we gather as a family, one of the first questions we are asked is, “What are you reading?”
For us to excel as leaders and managers, we must continue to learn. The more information we have, the better the decision we make. Today, we no longer have to read instructional tomes to discover what today’s thought leaders are discussing. We can access information* with just a few clicks of our fingers.
In my workshops and seminars, I am consistently asked, “What are you reading?” So, I thought I would share the articles and books that have got my attention over the last few weeks.

- Future of Work: I am on a kick to understand what work will look like in the future. How will the pandemic change how people will view work? Will more people work remotely? How will technology be used to gain connectedness? This article talks about the impact the exit of baby boomers will have on the workplace? Click to learn more.
These are just three of the many articles I am reading. I would love to hear from you about articles you have read or thought leaders you are following. Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org, and as always, I am available to answer any questions you have about creating a successful workplace.
