Non-Religious books and discussions on the topics
« on: September 20, 2020, 12:41:26 PM »
I have spent a little bit of time doing the audible books and read a few.

I thought we might be able to have conversations on topics and discuss books we are reading or have read.

Think book club for guys

Long ago a manger suggested I read “ Who moved my Cheese”


I didn’t understand why he wanted me to read the book.

I know now fifteen min into the book.

I don’t personally like change, I don’t like to move, I don’t like a single part.

I match most with the character “haw”.

I don’t think there is anything I don’t fit into his character.

I’m going to focus on being faster at recognizing the change, begin my mental adjustment sooner because o don’t think I’ll ever be excited about change.   
I also would like to see if I can help my five yr old.  His anxiety is just like mine and change screws him up for days

So here are 2 books that i have read several times and actually teach the concepts to people on a regular basis.

The first book is called "Crucial Conversations".  It is written by a guy named joseph grenny.  it teaches you how to actually change your behavior towards other people as well as teaches you tips and tricks on how to spot instances in time where crucial conversations can and will happen and how to effectively deal with them.

The second book is called "7 habits of highly effective people".  It was written by DR. Stephen Covey.  I am also certified to teach their 2 day course 7 habits for highly effective managers  (which is modified directly from that book.)

Both good books.

360 degree leader is a good one too.

Most all of Malcolm Gladwell’s stuff too.

I have taken the prescribed training on the crucial conversations book. I’d probably do well to refresh that one

What are some of the highlights you picked up on from the book Nate and Charles?
