Recently I’ve been doing a bit of traveling through the UK. While day trip adventures and family time are such enjoyable and beautiful blessings, I like to make sure I’m also taking time for myself and my professional growth.

Reading books and listening to podcasts are incredible ways to both unwind and immerse yourself in something new.

We are fortunate to live in an age where digital media allows us to easily connect with some of the most creative, innovative minds. While a simple tap on a screen grants us access to endless knowledge, this can also become overwhelming…

Sometimes you’re better off asking others for their recommendations. 

Today, you’re in luck! I’m serving up some recommendations on books and podcasts that I encourage you to check out this month. You’re going to enjoy these, and you’ll learn a whole lot.


On the podcast, The New P&L, host Paul Spiers speaks with business leaders and entrepreneurs to understand their views on the importance of Principles and Leadership, and how to work together to build more productive, collaborative, creative, and successful businesses.

CCG sponsors a monthly segment on The New P&L called Business Book Review Club where, once a month, Paul deep dives into some amazing business-related books and speaks one-on-one with their authors.

The latest episode features smart and captivating Sarah Kay, author of Brand New World: Define the Role of Your Brand to Create a Bold Future. She and Paul discuss ideas on creating the future, and how it doesn’t have to be difficult or scary. As Sarah mentions, her book aims to “demystify the opportunity to have a point of view in your own destiny, whether that’s as an individual or a collective.

Leaders across all industries can benefit from this episode of Business Book Review Club, as it speaks on how people can create better lives for themselves, their communities, and the world through brands.

Massive change is simply a series of incremental small steps—take your first step by listening to the brand new Business Book Review Club episode Here.

We’re excited that Paul will also be joining us as a speaker at CCG’s upcoming virtual event, the Step Up Challenge, this September. More details on the event will be announced in the coming weeks — so stay tuned!
