Business Books from the humanworks8 Bookshelf

Why We Read “Business Books”

The humanworks8 team is committed to continuous learning. We want to learn from others, challenge our own thinking and leverage existing research as we continue to bring The 8 to life in our client organizations. One way we do this – reading. You may even recall Shawn’s blog post about The Tsundoku shortly after we officially launched. Some of these books are integral to the humanworks8 Operating System – like the ones you’ll see from Kathy Kolbe – while others inform us, challenge us and give us new perspectives to consider and discuss.
