1 Habit: 100 Habits from the World’s Happiest Achievers – Paperback

You know the joy you feel when you are so passionate about your “why” that you can’t wait to wake up and jump right into life? That motivation will get you started, but to be able to follow through, you need the Habits that will help you place one foot in front of the other when things get tough.

Author, Steve Samblis spent years searching the world for the most successful people on the planet. He got to know them and asked them each “What was the one most crucial habit in your life that has made the most significant impact on your success.” He then took these 100 Habits and put them into a book called 1 Habit.

Not only does the 1 Habit contain the Habits, but it also teaches you how to make a Habit part of who you are. Make it part of your being. Once instilled in you, the Habits becomes something you just automatically now do, and that automates your pathway to success.

The Unexpected Leader: How To Achieve Team Success Without a Title

Rising to a position of leadership is both a choice and a journey. Not all great leaders seek leadership from the beginning, and not all who seek leadership are prepared for the demands involved. The Unexpected Leader is an excellent resource for all types of leaders, from the new leader who is working to develop an effective leadership style, to the long-time leader who has grown complacent over the years—and everyone in between. Written in the form of a short, engaging tale, The Unexpected Leader illustrates how different leadership styles affect a team, and how one can become a more effective leader by following a simple five-step process. The Unexpected Leader also addresses how to recover quickly when failure happens—and how to prevent mistakes from becoming obstacles to long-term success.

The 10 Commandments of Winning Teammates

Winning Teammates are the people that make it possible for any group to succeed… the people who others depend on. Winning Teammates are the people who others want to work with, because they bring more than just technical skills.  They bring interpersonal skills that every great organization needs to create and maintain a positive and productive culture.
In the book, you meet Nick Turner, a talented worker who finds himself changing jobs – again.
While packing to move, he finds an old piece of paper tucked away in a shoe box… a forgotten gift from his high school coach with a list of ways to be a winning teammate.   Looking back on his athletic career, Nick realizes it was very similar to what he is experiencing in his profession.  He had worked hard to become a great player – but he could have had more success if he had focused on the list…  he could have been a better teammate.

As he travels to his new job, he has a series of interesting interactions that illustrate the importance of the 10 Commandments his coach had emphasized years earlier.  The ten lessons he benefits from during his journey will inspire you to be a winning teammate – regardless of the industry you work in.
