BOOKS THAT CHANGE LIVES
Transformational coaching experiences paired with just the right book...
THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE
Powerful lessons in personal change
"...most people are too lazy to implement the ideals of Stephen Covey in their lives. They consider his masterpiece of a book as a mere coffee-table book or a book that you use for light reading when you are traveling and then forget all about it. They do not realize that this book contains life-changing information. Or, they take the information and do not make the effort to actually utilize it so that it becomes knowledge for them."
With a transformational life coach at the helm, you can read a book like this and create change that lasts!
The surprising truth about what motivates us
At the 2009 Globals Leadership Summit, Daniel Pink completely changed my teaching and leading style and philosophy. I pair this book with tools to turn "have to" in to "want to, get to, and choose to." It has worked with thousands of my students and fellow educators.
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE 2.0
The worlds most popular emotional intelligence test
"TalentSmart's revolutionary program helps people identify their EQ skills, build these skills into strengths, and enjoy consistent performance in the pursuit of important life objectives. The book contains proven strategies from a decade-long effort to accurately measure and increase emotional intelligence."
How to discuss what matters most
"Whether you're dealing with an under performing employee, disagreeing with your spouse about money or child-rearing, negotiating with a difficult client, or simply saying "no," or "I'm sorry," or "I love you," we attempt or avoid difficult conversation every day. Based on fifteen years of research at the Harvard Negotiation Project, Difficult Conversations walks you through a step-by-step proven approach to having your toughest conversations with less stress and more success."
THE FOUR AGREEMENTS
A Toltec wisdom book
"In The Four Agreements, don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love. The Four Agreements are: Be Impeccable With Your Word, Don't Take Anything Personally, Don't Make Assumptions, Always Do Your Best."
The origins of our discontents
"Wilkerson shows the ways that the insidious undertow of caste is experienced every day. She documents how the Nazis studied the racial systems in America to plan their out-cast of the Jews; she discusses why the cruel logic of caste requires that there be a bottom rung for those in the middle to measure themselves against; she writes about the surprising health costs of caste, in depression and life expectancy, and the effects of this hierarchy on our culture and politics. Finally, she points forward to ways America can move beyond the artificial and destructive separations of human divisions, toward hope in our common humanity."
HOW TO BE AN ANTIRACIST
Author of Stamped form the begining
"In this book, Kendi weaves together an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science, bringing it all together with an engaging personal narrative of his own awakening to antiracism. How to Be an Antiracist is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond an awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a truly just and equitable society."
YOU ARE YOUR BEST THING
Vulnerability, shame resilience, and the black experience
"Burke and Brown are the perfect pair to usher in this stark, potent collection of essays on Black shame and healing. Along with the anthology contributors, they create a space to recognize and process the trauma of white supremacy, a space to be vulnerable and affirm the fullness of Black love and Black life."
The secret to unlocking the stress cycle
"Emily and Amelia aren’t here to preach the broad platitudes of expensive self-care or insist that we strive for the impossible goal of “having it all.” Instead, they tell us that we are enough, just as we are—and that wellness, true wellness, is within our reach.
In these pages you’ll learn
• what you can do to complete the biological stress cycle—and return your body to a state of relaxation
• how to manage the “monitor” in your brain that regulates the emotion of frustration
• how the Bikini Industrial Complex makes it difficult for women to love their bodies—and how to defend yourself against it
• why rest, human connection, and befriending your inner critic are keys to recovering and preventing burnout."
Why teachers leave the profession they love and how they can stay
"A timely analysis of professional dissatisfaction that challenges the common explanation of burnout. Featuring the voices of educators, the book offers concrete lessons for practitioners, school leaders, and policy makers on how to think more strategically to retain experienced teachers and make a difference in the lives of students."
An everyday guide to caring for self while caring for others
"Joining the wisdom of ancient cultural traditions with modern psychological research, Lipsky offers a variety of simple and profound practices that will allow us to remake ourselves. Van Dernoot Lipsky offers a deep and empathetic survey of the often-unrecognized toll on those working to make the world a better place."
THE 4 LOVE LANGUAGES
The secret to love that lasts
"Discover the secret that has transformed millions of relationships worldwide."
Understanding your love language is the beginning to a whole new kind of connection to everyone in your life; children, spouses, friends, co-workers, employees, bosses, and your barista.
By Glennon Doyle
"This is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live and how she found the voice of the girl she had been before the world told her who to be. Glennon decided to quit abandoning herself and to instead abandon the world’s expectations of her. She quit being good so she could be free. She quit pleasing and started living.
Untamed shows us how to be brave. As Glennon insists: The braver we are, the luckier we get."
BRAVING THE WILDERNESS
The quest for true belonging and the courage to stand alone
"True belonging doesn't require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are."
"Brown argues that we're experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other."
How the courage to be vulnerable transforms the way we live, love, parent, and lead
"Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable, or to dare greatly. Whether the arena is a new relationship, an important meeting, our creative process, or a difficult family conversation, we must find the courage to walk into vulnerability and engage with our whole hearts."
