Wellbeing at Work by Jim Clifton and Jim Harter
What if the next global crisis is a mental health pandemic? It is here now. One-third of Americans have shown signs of clinical anxiety or depression, and the current state of suffering has increased significantly worldwide.

With organizations around the world facing health and social crises, as well as economic uncertainty, it is more important than ever to recognize and improve the wellbeing in your workplace.

Amazon Unbound: Jeff Bezos and Brad Stone’s Invention of a Global Empire
Almost ten years ago, Bloomberg journalist Brad Stone captured the rise of Amazon in his bestselling The Everything Store. Since then, Amazon has grown exponentially, inventing novel products like Alexa, and destroying countless industries while its workforce has quintupled and its valuation has risen to well over a trillion dollars. Jeff Bezos’ empire, once housed in a garage, now spans the globe. Between services like Whole Foods, Prime Video, and Amazon’s cloud computing unit, AWS, as well as Bezos’ ownership of the Washington Post, it’s impossible to go a day without an impact. We live in a world that is operated, supplied and controlled by Amazon and its iconoclast founder. Definitely, contemporary, and revealing, Stone has delivered an unvarnished portrait of a man and a society without whom we cannot imagine modern life.
Digital body language: how to build trust and connection no matter how far the distance is from Erica Dhawan
The definitive guide to communicating and connecting in a hybrid world. People rely on body language to connect and build trust, but with most of our communication happening behind a screen, traditional body language cues are no longer visible – right? In digital body language, Erica Dhawan, a collaborative thought leader and passionate communication junkie, combines cutting-edge research with engaging storytelling to decipher the new signals and cues that have replaced traditional body language across genders, generations and cultures. In real life, we lean forward, cross our arms, smile, nod, and make eye contact to show that we are listening and taking care of ourselves. Reading carefully online is the new hearing. Writing clearly is the new empathy. And a phone or video call is worth a thousand emails. Digital body language turns your daily misunderstandings into a series of collectively understood laws that promote connection regardless of distance. Dhawan explores a wide variety of exchange opportunities – from large conferences and video conferencing to daily email, text, instant messaging, and conference calls – providing insights and solutions to instill trust and clarity for everyone in our ever-changing world.
