What's On Your Reading List?

What’s on your bookshelf or nightstand for reading? Do you enjoy curling up with a good book at the end of the day to unwind or over your lunch break to catch a few minutes of escape from the craziness of the office? Many of us enjoy the chance to escape into a fiction book that give us the chance to explore new worlds and meet new characters.

But have you considered the power of reading some non-fiction books to advance your career? We know that we are shaped by what we learn, and reading is a vital tool in the learning of any new skill.  Many successful leaders were avid readers and have created reading lists. In fact, did you know that Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, has a reading list for his organization? Their list is to help develop a common understanding for employees and executives alike. Bill Gates maintains a recommended reading list on his site Gatesnotes. Many academic institutions also publish reading lists for their incoming freshman and other student body members.

The SDA National Education Committee has been busy creating our own Recommended Reading List to help advance your professional career.  We’ve listed books that have been recommended to us by our members that they have found useful in their office and/or job. The list continues to be updated and we are beginning to add summaries to some of the books that our members have found useful. All books have a link to Amazon in case you would like to purchase them for your library and/or reading pleasure. Reading truly is a key element in our professional development, so check out the list and let us know what you think.

Have you read a good book that helped advanced your career? Share the title, author and why it made an impact for you in the comment box below. We would love to add new titles to our recommended reading list that you all have enjoyed.
