WorkHuman 2015 Reading List


Bookstore Sign for WorkHuman

One of the surprise hits of WorkHuman 2015 last week was the element of the conference that was perhaps closest to my own heart–the WorkHuman Bookstore. Well, maybe not such a surprise. We put the bookstore right into the center of the event for a reason. The ideas and research of our WorkHuman speakers are critical takeaways for us to bring back to our organizations. We were happy attendeesĀ seemed to agree.

If you visited the WorkHuman Bookstore, you probably met Anne Marie and Sarah–who did such a fantastic job as first-time-out booksellers. The bookstore must have resonated powerfully with all of our attendees, because it sold out many titles during our event! (In fact at one point it looked like a grocery store before a big storm!)

Several of you asked during the event if we could post a list of the titles in the store, so that you could order them for yourselves! And if you didn’t get to attend, here’s a flavor of the event for you. Here is that list:
