πŸ“š BOOK CLUB: Inspiration - Win a Positive Planner πŸ“š

This month the book club theme is inspiration. It can be hard to summon up inspiration, particularly when working remotely and unable to discuss ideas with your colleagues in person. We thought it would be helpful to discuss books that have inspired us to build out our reading lists with powerful books for challenging times.

We have 3 x Positive Planners, a 12-week planner that focuses on enhancing positivity with illustrations, inspirational quotes, art therapy and mindfulness activities, to give away. To be in with a chance of winning one, all you need to do is tell us about a book that has inspired you in some way (can be work related or personal).

Drop a couple lines into the thread below to let us know the book that has inspired you and why you would recommend it. How did it inspire you?

Here’s an example from Thaisa our VP of People Operations at Geckoboard:

Recommending: Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl

Why: When I was a teenager and going through some challenging mental health issues my father recommended I read this book. It’s now my go-to book whenever I feel that I might be getting carried away in the stream, rather than navigating my course. This book showed me the importance of hope and love, and how important they are if I was to stay resilient in challenging times.

We will pick our three favourite answers and send out a Positive Planner in the mail to each of the winners. To be in with a chance of winning one of the three copies please leave your suggestion below before Wednesday 8th July. The winner will be announced here after the closing date.

The Motive : Why So Many Leaders Abdicate Their Most Important Responsibilities by Patrick Lencioni

I recommend this book because it made me really think about leadership and management differently. The value it places on leaders helping their teams is inspiring and thought-provoking. It is wrote in Patrick Lencioni’s typical hilarious and engaging style. He manages to make business books absolutely captivating and I believe that anyone inspiring to be a leader (or that already is a leader) needs to read this book.

Recommending: The Fred Factor

Why: Standard reading for any employee at our office. Talks about how much passion and doing your job well really does make a difference. Not a long read by any means, but one that has stuck with me through the years.
