Books are great coaches. As we navigate working from home, it is important to remember that quality mentorship and coaching can continue from your kitchen table (or couch!) Join the WWPR Professional Development team for a conversation about 5 books that inspired their professional growth. Emily O’Brien, Director of Strategic Communications, the Delta Dental Plans Association, and WWPR’s Professional Development Co-Chair, will lead the discussion, with tips on how to continue your professional growth at home and conversation starters from 5 featured books. Join us to get the spark notes version of  how to improve your writing, communication, leadership, strategic thinking, and team management skills.

Becoming, by Michelle Obama

Talking to Strangers, by Malcolm Gladwell

Daring Greatly, by Brene Brown
