Summer reading recommendationsAs many professionals use the next few weeks to take a well-earned break, some will also use the opportunity to think objectively about what lies ahead for business in the coming months.

Clearly the economic and political turbulence of recent weeks means that uncertainty will remain the norm, rather than the exception for some time.

We asked the Results team, in view of recent events, what summer reading they now recommend to help professionals be more adaptive, resilient and successful in Autumn 2016 and beyond.


Here are their suggestions:

  • The Chimp Paradox: The Mind Management Programme to Help You Achieve Success, Confidence and Happiness by Prof Steve Peters
  • Liquid thinking by Professor Damien Hughes. A book which examines methods used by great achievers and shows, in easy steps, how you can adopt them into your own life.
  • The Secrets of Resilient People by John Lees
  • People Styles at Work Making Bad Relationships Good and Good Relationships Better by Bolton and Bolton
  • Risk Savvy – How to make good decisions by Gerd Gigerenzer
  • Nudge – Improving decisions about health, wealth and happiness by Cass R Sunstein
  • Thinking fast and slow by Daniel Kahneman. An international best-seller, the book gives a whole new look at the way our minds work, and how we make decisions

And if you have a recommended book which you feel will be helpful to professionals in the coming months, do let us know.
