Who doesn’t love a good book? Reading is a wonderful way to escape, learn new things, and challenge the way we view the world. Now that we are starting off a new year, we thought it would be a great time to check in with a few members of our leadership team to see what they are reading this month.
Dan Schmitt, President & Chief Business Development Officer
Dan is reading Travels with Charley by John Steinbeck. Travels with Charley (1962) is a travelogue written by the famous American author as he traversed the United States with his dog Charley. Steinbeck undertook the journey and wrote the book after his health began to fail. He wanted to see as much of the United States and speak with citizens before he lost the ability to do so. To this day, it remains one of Steinbeck’s most admired tales.
Janet Riddlebarger, Executive Advisor
Janet is reading The Coaching Habit – Say Less, Ask More and Change the Way you Lead Forever by Michael Bungay Stanier. Drawing on interviews with thousands of business executives, Stanier’s book is designed to help leaders foster ownership among team members so that they can reach their full potential. The book goes into detail on different techniques one can use to communicate with people so that they can achieve mutually beneficial results.
Lance Goss, Vice-President of HHHunt Apartment Living
Lance is reading Wasteland by Terry Goodkind. The third novella in the Children of D’Hara epic fantasy series, Wasteland follows the story of Richard and Kahlan and their children. It is a continuation of the Sword of Trust series which took 25 years to write with 17 books published and over 26 million copies sold.
Tom Hudson, Vice-President of Land Acquisition
Tom is reading D-Day: June 6, 1944: The Climactic Battle of World War II by Stephen Ambrose. The book builds off interviews with over 1,400 allied and German forces to paint a vivid picture of one of the most important days in World War II and the 20th century. The book uses these first-hand accounts to dive into the decision-making process for leaders, soldiers and civilians as they navigated one of the largest military operations in the history of the world.
At HHHunt, we believe it’s how you live that matters and learning new things and expanding our imagination is at our core. Cheers to happy reading in 2020!
