2. Linchpin – Seth Godin
Why are some people easily outsourced, downsized, or freelance into obscurity, while others have their pick of opportunities? In his most powerful book yet, Seth Godin argues that it’s more essential than ever to become indispensable – and the key to being indispensable is overcoming the fears that hold most of us back. Fear or change, fear of authority, fear of embarrassment all come from the most primitive and powerful part of our brains.

3. Why We do What We Do – Edward Deci
The best way to motivate people—at school, at work, or at home—is to support their sense of autonomy. Explaining the reasons why a task is important and then allowing as much personal freedom as possible in carrying out the task will stimulate interest and commitment, and is a much more effective approach than the standard system of reward and punishment.
4. Start With Why- Simon Sinek
Any organization can explain what it does; some can explain how they do it; but very few can clearly articulate why. WHY is not money or profit– those are always results. WHY does your organization exist? WHY does it do the things it does? WHY do customers really buy from one company or another? WHY are people loyal to some leaders, but not others?

Welcome to Emotional Capital.” – Dr Martyn Newman
7. A Whole New Mind – Dan Pink

9. The DIP – Seth Godin
Every new project (or career or relationship) starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets harder and less fun, until it hits a low point – really hard, really not fun. At this point you might be in a Dip, which will get better if you keep pushing, or a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better no matter how hard you try. The hard part is knowing the difference and acting on it.
