Association Executive Book Shelf: A Look Back at 2018
By Raphael Badagliacca
Looking back at the year, the 2018 reviews confirm the value of reading for association leaders - or anyone, for that matter. Books slow things down. They help you master the vanishing art of listening - to a single voice. Then, almost magically, the knowledge you accumulate transforms into a conversation among the books you’ve read that you’ve earned the privilege to overhear.
This is especially true when you read with a purpose – in this case, to learn now you can better lead your organization.
Like all collections of wisdom, this year's harvest is made up of cautions, clarifications, and directions towards a more fulfilling future.
