Every month we share content that we are reading. This month, we dive into the books that our President, Dan Puga, has been reading.
Harry S. Truman said it best, “Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”
Independent learning is something that we do not take lightly here at In Time Tec. Reading is a simple way for our employees to expand their knowledge, build their expertise, and contribute to their growth while becoming leaders.
Here is a closer look at the specific authors and content that Dan has been reading:
Mindset, by Carol Dweck. Explains the difference between having a fixed and a growth mindset, why one trumps the other, and what you can do to adopt the right one.
The Coaching Habit, by Michael Bungay Stanier. Offers practical wisdom that takes a timeless pursuit--to turn every manager into a coach--and breaks it down into a simple set of everyday habits.
Ego is the Enemy, by Ryan Holiday. Reveals how a tendency that's hardwired into our brains – the belief the world revolves around us and us alone – holds us back from living the life it makes us desire so much, what we can do to overcome it at every turn and how to achieve true greatness.
Sapiens, by Yuval Noah Harari. Spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural and Scientific Revolutions. Explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities.
The Book of Joy, by Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, and others. Discusses the challenges of living a joyful life. Explains why suffering is inevitable, how to react to it better, and which emotions you can channel it into.
