Reading Recommendations

Autumn Selections with Elizabeth

The Business Plan for Peace: Building a World Without War 

By Scilla Elworthy

This book gives a eye opening view into the world of war and the stake holders ‘power’ in numbers. The book then looks at positive solutions that could benefit all. A must read for any peace builder. Full of facts and asks the questions we all need to be asking.

Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.

By Brené Brown

“I have not read this book yet but have listened to the podcasts and they are brilliant. I think we can all lead and this book could open up a conversation around how to lead in inspiring ways. I believe we need to be taught how to have those tough conversations, invest in a culture of showing up and working through to fruitful solutions. It’s a way to inner peace and outer peace.”
Summer Selections with Emma

The Year of Living Danishly; Uncovering the Secrets of the World’s Happiest Country

By Helen Russell

“What I love about this book is it is based on a lived experience as well as facts the author gathered in her research phase. It is teaching me about a culture I’m not familiar with, how community engagement can lead to positive social change and integration and cultivate an environment that has led locals to rate their happiness levels so highly.”

How to Thrive in the New Kindness Economy

By Mary Portas

“What I love about this book is it speaks to present day. It teaches kindness and that real people, with hobbies, interests, and loved ones live most prominently within corporations, not just business talk. Being kind has never been more important, especially after losing human contact during the pandemic lockdowns. It’s time to put humans and the world first. No more sales lingo.”
