In The New Rules of Sales and Service, David Meerman Scott explores how the sales cycle has radically changed over the years. Online content is the driving force behind most commerce today, and any company that does not embrace this new reality will suffer. Yet, many companies have not made the switch and are still operating with traditional, out-of-date selling and service models. http://tinyurl.com/zr3vwee

By learning how to make effective decisions, people can improve everything from the quality of their health to their finances to their personal relationships. In Risk Savvy, risk expert Gerd Gigerenzer taps into his years of research to demonstrate how people can choose the best options possible when facing risks and uncertainty. Gigerenzer argues that with an in-depth understanding of statistics and the psychology of risk, people will no longer have to depend on analysts and experts with ulterior motives to help inform their decision making. http://tinyurl.com/z2x3flg

Many people dread public speaking, but their jobs or roles in their communities sometimes require it. People tend to rely on statistics, visual aids, or a barrage of information to get them through a presentation, but this is not what the audience wants. In Being the Best Bad Presenter Ever, Karen Hough makes the simple point that audiences are really there for human contact. Stage fright disappears when the presenter connects with the meeting's purpose and the people in the audience, which happens by being natural and authentic. http://tinyurl.com/jtj4ma4

Everyday Bias by Howard J. Ross explores the idea that every human being is biased. Biases are not always malicious, but they do invade every aspect of life. Ross helps readers understand how to identify and overcome biases. He also strongly encourages organizations to develop strategies that make their institutions less biased and more diverse and inclusive. While there is no way to completely eliminate all bias, Ross suggests that by simply becoming aware of their biases, people and organizations alike can make strides to overcome them. http://tinyurl.com/zfktmdu
