Top recommendation for HR: It’s actually a parenting book—Parenting with Love and Logic (NavPress Publishing, 2006) by Foster Cline and Jim Fay.
Why it’s relevant: It’s a must-read for HR in developing a mindset of neutrality, holding others accountable and coaching employees to greatness. Not to imply that employees are like children, but the book provides simple, effective strategies to lovingly lead others.
What I’m bringing to the beach:
Traveling Mercies (Anchor, 2000) by Anne Lamott—an old favorite that I reread about once a year. Lamott has an incredible ability to put words to our tragicomic life experiences.
