Quel est votre livre préféré et pourquoi ? Entreprises et non-entreprises, si possible.
Non commercial - Le cahier. Don’t make fun of me here, but I read it at a young age that I think aided in creating a little romance in my mind which I think helped me in my relationships and has benefited my marriage.
Business – Probably Give and Take by Adam Grant. It helped spark a helpful mentality in my life that has been invaluable.
Y a-t-il eu un moment, précisément, où quelque chose que vous avez lu dans un livre vous a aidé ? Pouvez-vous m'en parler?
I read a David Bach book that was given to me by my mother when I was a teenager. It was about personal finance and I remember reading it and promising myself I would be responsible with money moving forwards. That promise has been extremely valuable to me on my path in business.
Quels livres vous ont le plus marqué ? (peut-être changé votre façon de voir les choses, radicalement changé votre cheminement de carrière)
Essentialism – Great book that helps you focus on what’s important in your life.
Quels livres conseilleriez-vous aux jeunes intéressés par votre parcours professionnel ? Pourquoi? (pas de limite de nombre ici)
J'aimerais en savoir plus sur vos habitudes de lecture. À quelle fréquence lisez-vous ? Sous quel format ?
I’m always consistently reading. I use apps like Newspick and others to stay up-to-date on news and knowledge being share. I’m also fortunate to lead a company that is surrounded by amazing content from clients and partners that come across my screen frequently.
Comment gagner du temps pour lire ?
I travel a lot so I save reading for time on flights or stuck in an airport.
Comment choisissez-vous les livres à lire ensuite ?
I trust my friends and close relationships to recommend what’s most valuable to them an aggregate the choices. Then I’ll spend about an hour a month searching for new types of books/information that others might not see.
Priorisez-vous les livres recommandés par certaines personnes ? Y a-t-il quelqu'un que vous considérez comme un gourou des recommandations de livres ?
Not Gurus… people I know and trust.
Dernière question : quel livre lisez-vous actuellement et qu'espérez-vous en retirer ?
Outils des Titans – Tim Ferriss. It was a gift so I kind of have to read it.
