For those who are in the middle of or just about to start their CIPD programmes there are lots of recommended books / resources to read throughout the programmes that will assist with the activities.
These books & resources serve to support and reinforce the key topics and provide reference materials and will be introduced in the participant packs and during specific workshops.
Reading is very important as evidence suggests reading can improve intelligence and lead to innovation and insight as this post here describes
One of our new community members, Colin Street from our London programme, was asking about some recommended reading and we thought let's not just limit this to CIPD programmes but open this to all community members.
So let me introduce Book Club, a place to share your favourite titles and books that you've enjoyed reading that have supported your professional development. This could include any book you've read on any subject. I'm not talking 50 Shades of Grey or anything but I think across this growing community of over 200 members we could recommend some fantastic titles.
If there are books that you've read and would recommend then why not post the title and may be a link to them here with a brief description. Alternatively add a new discussion and add it to the Recommended Reading category and tag them as Book Club
Here is the first one - it's a popular one and one you may have heard of that looks at Motivation and what drives us to succeed. It is of course Drive - The Surprising truth of What Motivates Us by Daniel Pink
