Every one of us can equip another to be their best self. Here is what is inspiring me.

Rosie's Must-Reads

Atlas of the Heart, Brené Brown

(coming Nov. 30). I can’t WAIT to dig into her latest book exploring 87 of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human and a framework for cultivating meaningful connection.

Permission to Feel, Mark Brackett

This book provides a key blueprint for understanding our emotions and using them wisely so that they help, rather than hinder, our success and well-being.

Think Again, Adam Grant

If we’re going to be effective, we must learn to rethink – questioning our opinions and opening other people’s minds. This book is mind-blowing and a must-read!

Boundary Boss, Terri Cole

So many people struggle with setting boundaries. Yet, without healthy boundaries, we can’t live an authentic and fulfilled life. This book has been transformative for so many of my clients.

Loving What Is, Byron Katie

I’m all about shifting self-limiting narrative, so I love this work! This book gives 4 powerful questions you can apply in the moment to reframe and see things in a new light.

Rising Strong, Brené Brown

We WILL fall down many times in our lives. The key is being able to own our stories and get back up again. This book is a resiliency playbook to leverage setbacks as a path for growth.

Taming Your Gremlin, Rick Carson

This is one of the first books I bought when I became a coach. “Gremlin” is a term that personifies the part of our thinking that holds us back and keeps us small. Acknowledging and naming it gives it less power so our best thinking has space to emerge.

Get to What Matters, Wendy Lynch and Clydette deGroot

Listening well is the most critical communication skill; yet most of us have room to improve. This book offers a toolbox to help defuse tension, overcome challenges, and create trust to take your conversations to a gratifying level through key listening tools.

Thanks for the Feedback, Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen

Before we can effectively give feedback, we have to be able to receive it well. And it’s critical for our ongoing growth. This book gives tangible tools to help accept feedback with curiosity and grace.

The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz

This quick-read book is based on ancient Toltec wisdom. It reveals the source of our self-limiting beliefs and the Four Agreements and practices that can transform our lives.

These are some professional heroes who have inspired me and who I've been fortunate enough to meet...and honored to have become friends with a few of them.
