Here are some of the books I enjoyed this week. 

Grounded
By Bob Rosen

Internationally renowned CEO advisor Bob Rosen proposes a new approach to leadership in Grounded in which leaders at every level can become more self-aware, develop their untapped potential, and drive better results for themselves, their teams and their organizations. Rosen’s Healthy Leader model highlights six personal dimensions that any leader can master: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, vocational and spiritual health.


The strangeness of scale at Twitter
By Del Harvey

When hundreds of thousands of Tweets are fired every second, a one-in-a-million chance — including unlikely sounding scenarios that could harm users — happens about 500 times a day. For Del Harvey, who heads Twitter’s Trust and Safety Team, these odds aren’t good. The security maven spends her days thinking about how to prevent worst-case scenarios while giving voice to people around the globe. With deadpan humor, she offers a window into how she keeps 240 million users safe.

Great Work, Great Career
by Jennifer Colosimo, Stephen R. Covey

Do you have a good career, a mediocre career, or a great career? How do you know? And how do your create a great career? The most respected business thinker of our time, Dr. Stephen R. Covey, and change consultant Jennifer Colosimo offer a complete handbook for anyone seeking answers.

"The energy you invest in regularly and frequently building your village will pay dividends not only in advancing your career, but also in personal satisfaction. You will get into the habit of service, which is the foundation of a great career. With a synergy mindset, you will learn from the best people in your life. And when you need them, they’ll be there for you because you have been there for them."

"The village you build might ultimately be your greatest career achievement. It might even become the source of great new advances in understanding your field. It’s a natural principle that you cannot achieve anything truly worthwhile alone –– at least not in the world of work."
