The ROI Search Partners Team are avid readers. Team members Mark Grieman and Marcy Whelan share some books that changed their way of thinking about the way they live and work.

Mark Grieman recommends Robert Schuller’s Tough Times Don’t Last, Tough People Do, Bob Burg’s The Go-Giver and Michael Rosenbaum’s Six Tires No Plan. Marcy Whelan’s top picks are Michael Watkins’ The First Ninety Days and John Maxwell’s Intentional Living.

Aside from the intrinsic benefits of reading, the activity can also help support a person’s ability to navigate complex social relationships and empathize with others. According to David Kidd and Emanuele Castano, literary fiction engages psychological processes that hone critical social capacities for adults. In other words, you can improve your ability to interact with others – whether in finding the right candidates, or in other relationships – via fiction.
