Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much by Anne Wilson Schaef

“This is an honest and inspiring book including one theme (includes quote, discourse, and affirmation) for each day of the year. It’s really helped me to see how I feel the need take on more than I need to at times, both at work and at home. Our speaker Michele Whitham recommended this book at her Own Your Own Football conflict communication event last October.” – Leah (volunteer)

 

Never Split the Difference by Chris Voss

“I loved this book for the approachable, interesting lessons that the author presented on how to train yourself to be a stronger negotiator, both professionally and personally. Chris Voss is a former FBI hostage negotiator and his pointers mingle with stories from his time spent on the front lines. I found his guide very helpful because it detailed actionable ways to improve active listening and emotional intelligence, especially for those of us that find negotiations intimidating.” – Kate (volunteer)

 

You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero

“This book was a fast, enjoyable, and knowledge-packed read. Jen Sincero sets out to help readers boost their self-confidence, focus their goals, and define steps that are realistic and actionable to get you moving forward. She’s got mental exercises to help readers grow, and some great anecdotes that get readers laughing. When I read this book, I knew I wasn’t alone in feeling lost and not knowing what I wanted to be in the future, and I came away from it feeling determined and ready to take on something new. A great read if you’re feeling stuck either professionally or personally.”  Kate (volunteer)
