Whether you’re on a beach listening to the waves lap gently against the shore or relaxing in a hammock with a fresh glass of sparkling lemonade, there’s no more perfect warm-weather accessory than a good book. To help you craft the perfect summer reading list, we polled some of our leadership team to find out the great business-related books they’ve had on their mind lately. 

 

Bryce DelGrande, Head of Sales

From Seed to Harvest, a Simple Explanation of Venture Capital, by Paige Finn Doherty

Simple is (often) good! This is one of my favorite venture capital primers, because it uses a deceptively simple analogy to demystify a process that so many people make needlessly opaque.

 

Christina Logsdon, Head of Marketing

Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action, by Simon Sinek

This book wisely encourages business leaders to think past the WHAT (what we do to increase revenue now?) and onto the more important question of WHY (why are we motivated to solve this unique problem?). Making that leap in thinking is core to business growth and brand-building. 

 

Shirley Mills, CFO

Thinking, Fast and Slow, by Daniel Kahneman

Decision-making impacts just about everything we do, and this is still one of the best books on the topic I’ve ever read. It combines fascinating insights about how our brains work with practical advice on how we can put that knowledge to use. 

 

Lynne Zagami, Head of Customer Success

Peak Performance, by Brad Stulberg and Steve Magness

I’m not exaggerating when I say this book changed my life. Learning that I didn’t always have to be going at 100 miles per hour—and that I was actually doing my performance a disservice—was a transformative insight. 

 

Jen McPhilimy, Head of Product & UX

Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know, by Adam Grant

This deftly book compels us to examine what we think and why we think it and invites us to reconsider. If you’re interested not just in learning, but what it means to learn, you owe it to yourself to check this one out.
