The # 1 question you ask me (via text, DM, email, or in person) is:
What are your TOP Book & Podcast Recommendations for Personal Development, Leadership/ Business Growth, and continued alignment?
I love this question, and I love to be valued for my greatest passions: reading and learning.
While the answers do change with the season (I read A LOT), here are the top of the tops right now:
For Spiritual Growth (expect a real breakthrough if you apply these IN FULL):
Radical Honesty by Brad Blanton
The Way of Integrity by Martha Beck
(Brad is way more direct. For those who read Martha’s book but are still lying – try Brad’s).
For business growth and impact:
Good to Great by Jim Collins / Jerry Porras (it’s the best one of all his/ their books)
If you prefer to listen – note, all the above are available on Audible. But podcasts you may enjoy checking out (aside from the COACHED podcast, of course) are:
Freakonomics Radio and especially the Show: People I Mostly Admire, with Steve Levitt. I have listened to this episode with Yuval Noah Harari half a dozen times. LOVE IT.
Definitely not a fan of the two-hour interview, but if you ARE – then Tim Ferriss’ podcast is IT. Special shout out to the only three episodes I have listened to ALMOST in full: Yuval Noah Harari, Jerry Seinfeld, and my husband, Hugh Jackman.
If you like my teachings and voice and want to know which recent podcast interviews I would recommend, here are my top 3 appearances that have been downloaded tens of thousands of times:
1. How to Find Radical Acceptance for Yourself on The Art of Being Well, with my buddy, Dr. Will Cole
2. The Superstar Paradox: Why and How Happiness Eludes Overachievers, on HER MONEY with Jean Chatzky
3. Need some Enthusiasm? on The Elegant Warrior with Heather Hansen
If that doesn’t make your week… I will keep trying. Just ask.
