I'm always looking for new books to read!

An interesting book Hiding in the Bathroom: An Introvert's Roadmap to Getting Out There (When You'd Rather Stay Home) by Morra Aarons-Mele empowers professionals of all ages and levels to take control and build their own versions of success. Thoughtful and practical, it is a must-have handbook for building a fantastic, prosperous career and a balanced, happy life—on your own terms. Aarons-Mele challenges the notion that success is only accomplished through tireless networking, being on 24/7, and by taking on endless anxiety-provoking projects and assignments. We can live a balanced, joyful, successful life!

Here's new podcast series that I'm finding quite interesting: Coaching Real Leaders, part of Harvard Business Review's new network of business podcasts curated by HBR editors. This new podcast features real-life coaching sessions with leaders working to overcome professional challenges. In this episode, host Muriel Wilkins speaks with a woman who’s been walking a tightrope between addressing a superior’s microaggressions and making her team feel safe. Wilkins coaches this manager toward the actions she can take to improve the situation and build a healthier culture at her organization.
