Business bookshelf: Reads making the rounds

▪ “Do the Kind Thing: Think Boundlessly, Work Purposefully, Live Passionately” – The author and CEO of Kind snacks shares the principles that have shaped the company’s business model and led to its success. Inspired by his father, who survived the Holocaust thanks to the kindness of strangers, Daniel Lubetzky began his career handselling a sun-dried tomato spread made collaboratively by Arabs and Jews in the war-torn Middle East.

▪ “Data Driven” – Transform the corporate sales function by leveraging big data into better decision-making, more informed strategy and increased effectiveness throughout the organization. This book tells the story of a newly hired sales chief under intense pressure to deliver higher performance from her team, and how data analytics becomes the ultimate driver behind the sales function turnaround.

▪ “Force for Good: How Enlightened Finance Can Restore Faith in Capitalism” – The author explores how Wall Street can harness the same creative energy that invented credit default swaps and channel it towards the public good — in the form of a stable retirement system, investment strategies that protect the environment and reward responsible corporate behavior, and a financial industry with a culture of ethics, integrity and client focus. 800-CEO-READ
