Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.

Brené Brown

Leadership is not about titles, status, and wielding power. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential.

When we dare to lead, we don’t pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it with others. We don’t avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into vulnerability when it’s necessary to do good work.

Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People

Vanessa Van Edwards

As a human behavior hacker, Vanessa Van Edwards created a research lab to study the hidden forces that drive us. And she’s cracked the code. In Captivate, she shares shortcuts, systems, and secrets for taking charge of your interactions at work, at home, and in any social situation. These aren’t the people skills you learned in school. This is the first comprehensive, science backed, real life manual on how to captivate anyone—and a completely new approach to building connections.

Confidence 2.0: A Holistic Approach to Mastering Self-Confidence

Patricia Harmon, Ph.D.

Self-confidence is a key ingredient to self-empowerment, well-being and success in life. It fuels our drive to reach for the things we want and deserve. But even with experience and past success, self-confidence is not guaranteed and can be easily lost during challenging times.

In Confidence 2.0 Pat Harmon explores how to regain and improve your self-confidence with proven strategies backed by science that address the many self-sabotaging causes and conditions that can lead to a loss of self-confidence; it is a must read for those who are looking to improve their self-confidence and empowerment.

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking

Susan Cain

In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts—from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Passionately argued, impeccably researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves.
