How many books do you read each year? How many books would you like to read? If you’re like most leaders, you suffer at least a bit from “too many books, too little time.”
So many excellent business resources hit the shelves each year, and sifting through them for the winners – let alone carving out the time to read them – can prove challenging. You may be preventing yourself, your business, and your team from reaching your full potential, however, by not staying up-to-date on the latest strategies, business case studies, research, and even controversial hot topics.
That’s where this blog will help! As a Certified Executive and Leadership Coach, Dr. Christi Hegstad openly admits to three addictions: reading, writing, and anything to do with extraordinary leadership. Rather than attempt to break these addictions, over a decade ago she decided to turn them into a business to help professionals become more engaged in meaningful work that makes a difference.
MAP Professional Development Inc. offers coaching and training services to help leaders and emerging leaders flourish in their roles with clarity, confidence, and meaningful action. Christi’s goal with this blog is to not only keep you updated on the excellent business books you've been hearing about – and possibly collecting – but to also provide actionable takeaways you can implement immediately.
With the approach of a researcher (she holds a doctorate in human resource development) and the real-world experience of a business professional (she’s owned her firm since 2003), Christi will clear away the excess and provide you with tips and tools to enhance your leadership at work, home, and in all your various life roles.
Watch for a new book reviewed each month, with takeaways spread out over a couple of posts. Feel free to comment with your questions, experiences, and book suggestions at any time. In addition to leading MAP Inc. and writing the Do What You Love! blog,
