Here's a sampling of what we're reading right now. Please let us know what books are on your night stand, so we can add them to a future list!
Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness by Richard H. Thaler and Cass R. Sunstein. Recommended by Elisa van Dam, Director of Executive Education. “Another interesting book on decision making. The focus is on how to be a 'change architect' who sets up decisions in a way that 'nudges' people to make decisions that are better for them.”
The Immortal Cells of Henrietta Lacks by Isabel Wilkerson. Recommended by Stacy Blake Beard, Faculty. “This fascinating book speaks to the need for ethics in organizations.”
Made to Stick by Chip Heath and Dan Heath. Recommended by Elisa van Dam, Director of Executive Education. “Great ideas on how to make your idea, presentation, product, service, or anything else, memorable by crafting a compelling story.”
