Elevating the Human Experience: Three Paths to Love and Worth at Work
Amelia Dunlop
Wiley, 240 pp., $30

Feeling worthy in the workplace is a struggle for half of employees, yet it is important to most. Dunlop, chief experience officer at Deloitte Digital, walks readers through the actions Deloitte took to prioritize the human experience and close the worthiness gap among employees. Readers looking to add more of a human touch to their leadership style will learn steps they can take to make all staff, including those who have been systematically marginalized, feel valued for being their authentic selves.


The Promises of Giants: How YOU Can Fill the Leadership Void
John Amaechi Obe
Nicholas Brealey, 224 pp., $29.95

To be the leader that you want to be, Obe posits that you first must make promises to yourself, your team, and your organization. Among them, promise to see team members as people, rather than job descriptions; provide timely feedback; and commit fully to success. In all, the author suggests 14 promises for leaders who are looking to maximize their influence. He dedicates one chapter to each of the promises to help readers lead with intention and tap into their giant potential.
