Yesterday we brought you Fi Haywood, who leads Training and Development at Café Style Speed Training. Fi discussed the value of building a strong team through open workplace culture. (If you missed Fi, go back and listen here.)
It’s no secret the most successful people are always learning, about their businesses and about themselves. Fi Haywood’s favorite resources reveal how some of the most crucial qualities are also the most timeless.
1) How to Stop Worrying and Start Living
Dale Carnegie always has tricks up his sleeve. I turn to How to Stop Worrying whenever I need a reminder that most of the things I think are big problems actually aren’t. Business, like life, demands you have a thick skin.
2) Mind is the Master: The Complete James Allen Treasury
James Allen is a wizard in the self-help world, and his complete works are some of my most prized resources. I turn to them for some wisdom about my personal life, but also to my business and professional outlook.
3) The Magic of Thinking Big
This is my go-to book for motivation. When my business seems like it’ll never take off, I look to The Magic of Thinking Big to let me know the biggest risks aren’t always worth it, but thinking big is the only way to get there.
4) The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness
We can’t just get the job done. We have to do it to the best of our abilities. I love this book because it really challenges old ways of thinking. It brings a sense of newness to my work and keeps me instilling that quality in my clients.
