If you’re anything like us, you’ll love hearing what other people are reading and what inspires them. That’s why we’ve started a book club in the community, with a different topic covered each month, so we can build up an inspiring reading list on a range of topics. We’ll also be giving away prizes…
To kick off the first community book club thread, we’ll be discussing a topic that’s more important now than ever: communication.
Can you tell us about a book that’s changed the way you communicate with your team?
- Why would you recommend this book?
- How has it changed the way you communicate?
- Add a link to purchase the book if available
Here’s an example from our VP of People Ops, Thaisa…
Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life by Marshall B. Rosenberg, PhD
Why would you recommend this book?
If you think of language as a key, and communication as being able to open a door, this book gives you insight into how to craft your own master key, not only in how to open many more doors, but understand that door’s construction, design, and purpose.
How has it changed the way you communicate?
Marshall describes how words are used to hurt or harm for many different reasons, hence violent communication. His book has made me more aware of my vocabulary and its purpose, made me more reflective of why I use the words I do, and reasserted the importance of self empathy and compassion.
