The holidays are almost here and you may be scrambling to find a last minute gift for those on your list, or simply anticipating a bit of a break where you can rest, enjoy family, and rejuvenate yourself for the new year. Why not share the gift of a great book – or take the time to read one for yourself. Go ahead, you deserve it!
Our Reality-Based Leadership team has gathered a list of Cy’s favorite reads that will have a bit of something for everyone, from books on business leadership and change, to motivational and self-reflection topics, to great authors like Brene Brown and Simon Sinek. And, we didn’t forget a bit of great poetry!
