When one begins looking into what makes us tick as people, what you find out is that there have been billions upon billions of dollars done on research, yet we see very little of this evidence and result of this in the public domain, mainly because it’s been used to get us to buy more and more and to manipulate and guide us to certain ways of thinking, though there is some sound material out there which has made its way into the public domain.
And the following 14 books are some of this sound material I have discovered and read countless times as I’ve come to understand myself and others better as I strive to work towards creating environments in which learning and self-education become inevitable.
In one’s own search, you’ll find your own sound material that resonates with you, as these 14 resonate with me as I’m looking to clear away the clutter that’s built up with too much information. I’ve included a link to the book depository so one can look at the description of the following books so one can see the type of material covered.
Start With Why – Simon Sinek
Find Your Why – Simon Sinek
Mindset – Carol Dweck
Grit – Angela Duckworth
Curious – Ian Leslie
Drive – Dan Pink
The Four Tendencies – Gretchen Rubin
Conscious Coaching – Brett Bartholomew
In Sheep’s Clothing – George Simon Jr
(I have included the book – In Sheep’s Clothing, because working with people is not all beer and skittles as there are people out their who at times do go out of their way to destroy what one is trying to build, and this is also where the concept of needy people comes in)
Leaders Eat Last – Simon Sinek
Influencer, the power to change anything – Various
Instant Influence – Michael Pantalon
Invisible Influence – Jonah Berger
The Influential Mind – Tali Sharot
There are many more books out there with relevant information and with new one’s being published all the time, and the list of books to included will only keep growing.
To first begin to understand others, one must first begin to understand yourself and also realise that the way that you think is not the way the others think or processes information
