The Power of Now

By Eckhart Tolle

This is a great read that helps to keep you focused on the present moment. Eckhart describes how our past experiences only impact us in the present moment if we bring it with us. Instead, if we focus on the now we can achieve inner peace, increase our joy, and experience harmonious relationships. I wonder what you discover with this read!

Nonviolent Communication: 2nd Edition

By Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D.

The second edition of this trilogy is by far one of our favourite editions! The premise of the books do not change. Marshall had developed a great style of communication that does not throw those you are attempting to communicate with into a defensive position but instead into an open dialogue where both parties can express their needs in an effective way. The 2nd edition does a great job of explaining how we all create stories in our head about a situtaion prior to even starting our discussions which impacts our ability to effectively communicate. This book is a great way to improve your communication at home and in your professional life.

Nonviolent Communication: 3rd Edition

By Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D.

I know it seems strange that we would recommend two editions of the same book, but that is how good they are! Both books offer insights that are unique and definitely worth reading! This edition works through our judgments of others, bullying, racial bias, blame, discrimination, speaking without listening and so much more! You will definitely become a master of communication with the 3rd edition. We recommend that you read the 2nd edition for mastery of your personal life and the 3rd edition for mastery of your professional life. Although reading one or the other is just as helpful.
