Weekly Reading List: David Fontana


On this edition of watchLAB‘s Weekly Reading List we have a tiring problem, things that winners never tolerate, Laziness — now On Demand, how to drop a bomb gently, and everything you need to energize your employees (and satisfy their hunger the right way).

Here’s what I’ve been reading:

1) Why Detectives are Always so Tired

Found on Harvard Business Review, by Nicole Torres

Whether your Sherlock Holmes or not, problem solving and trouble shooting can be a tiresome pastime. Find out the difference between the promotive and preventive mindsets that plague every office. Which one are you?


2)  12 Don’ts and Won’ts for Success 

Found on Inc., by Lolly Daskal

Want to be a successful person written about in Inc.? Check out Daskal’s list and get ready to never do anything she says.


3) Laziness — On Demand

Found on Forbes, by Harry Campbell

Stop tapping your iPhone and find out why we’re becoming so exponentially lazy (by clicking this link on your computer instead).


4) Delivering Babies just Met its Match

Found on Harvard Business Review, by Amy Gallo

So maybe it’s not “quite” as hard as a delivering a baby, but no one ever enjoys delivering bad news, especially to employees. A really great article on the intricacies of managing employees and the fine line between your company and your staff.


5) Reading Never Tasted So Good

Found on Inc., by Veer Gidwaney

Has all this great reading left you exhausted? Grab an energy boost with these great snacks for your staff.


This is watchLAB saying, “Keep reading and have a good week.”
