In addition to getting away for new perspective, I've always enjoyed and benefited by investing in a good book or two each month. Several years ago I was reading three business books per month - now I average two, plus some magazines. The books tend to focus on communication skills, new selling books, marketing, negotiation, and other pertinent topics to the sales profession.
It would be a great discussion to hear what the readers of this blog are reading - and what you tink about the books you have read or are working on.
Magazines are great because they can be picked up when there are a few minutes here and there, and one new idea (as I seem to be known for saying) can change everything.
So, what are you reading? Post your thoughts. I'll share mine later in the week.
