Books we loved this month:

The One Thing – by Gary Keller
“I appreciate that this book offers a fresh & logical perspective on a constant challenge: there will always be more “to-dos” that can be done. I’m often overwhelmed by this reality, and “The One” gives a road map for prioritization that makes sense to me.” – Alyssa Denney, WoF member


The First 90 Days – by Michael Watkins

“This is a great book to read if you’re transitioning to a new position. Questions and exercises help you to think about the new challenges you’ll face and how to make the most of your first few months on the job. It presents leadership ability as a skill that can be learned, not a natural talent that you have to be born with.” – Laura Wright, WoF member



The Male Factor – by Shaunti Feldhahn
“This book gave me a better understanding of how men in the workplace perceive and think about female behaviors in the workplace. The author has interviewed and surveyed several thousand men to get their truthful perspectives. It may not always be what you want to hear, or it may pleasantly surprise you. The book helped me to better understand my male co-workers and opened my eyes to how men can and want to be great mentors to women who are developing their careers.” – Laura Wright, WoF member
