Your #Careerlion Reading List for Career Transitions

As you may have read in our earlier blogs, both Liona and I started on new professional adventures November last year. Speaking for myself, it has been a great adventure so far. However, it is also quite an adjustment. I have and had lots of questions starting in the new position. That is why I have made a reading list for myself to deal with the change itself, in addition to the knowledge I have still to obtain about the new domain. I personally feel that in your professional career it is not always about how much you already know about a certain domain. It is the way you carry yourself in your team and organization and obtain the knowledge that you need. Keeping that in mind, please read on if you are curious to know which books have made the cut.

The Truth About Lying

Ever since we are little, we (hopefully) learn that we should never lie. That telling the truth is the most important thing, no matter what the consequences are. Simply because it is the right to do. When we are “wise” and “old” somehow, however, we still tell lies. If not to others, we most likely still lie to ourselves. Previously, I have blogged about on how you can spot a liar. This blog focuses on different common lies in the life of a #careerlion and when it may even be acceptable. Exploring the perspective of why lying may even be “healthy”.

Autumn Reads For #Careerlions

This week I will share with you the books that I currently have on my autumn reading list. Inspired by the autumn weather that we are currently experiencing in the Netherlands. It makes me want to curl up on the couch or chair with a good book, tea, and snacks. While reading in the sun has its charms, so does rainy weather while being grateful that you are nice and cosy inside. If anything, there is nothing I hate more than being in the rain. Wondering which books to order for the plentiful rainy days to come? Then look no further and find some suggestions in today’s blog.
