The end of 2015 means the beginning of a new year. With the new year comes new opportunities for growth and development.
I know I promised last week that I would talk about strategies for breaking down the silos and eliminating the training gaps. I will provide those strategies next week. Massive computer issues and the realization that it is already December 29 caused a change in plans.
In the spirit of growth and sharing here are some reading and training recommendations for you as we move into 2016.
Recommended Reading for 2016
If you have not already read the following books I would highly recommend they be on your reading list in 2016:

There are opportunities between blocks of speakers to connect with the speakers and other attendees as well as engage in interactive experiences. www.experiencewinx.com
