Browse our bookshelves this World Book Day and take a look at what we read here at ClearScore
We love reading here at ClearScore. We even have our very own library which is full of books we’ve found useful for work and personal development, and some fun reads for the commute. So what’s on our shelves?
The Speed of Trust, Stephen M. R. Covey
This book comes with a recommendation from Justin Basini, our CEO and co-founder. Trust is a key principle here. Having a culture of trust helps to achieve success as it encourages working as a team rather than focusing on the individual. This book has the benefit of being both insightful and practical. It explains the basic principles first, uses case studies covering everything from Covey’s childhood to the work of Warren Buffett, and gives you exercises to calculate and improve trust at both individual and organisational levels.
The Ultimate Question, Fred Reichheld
This recommendation comes from our email marketing team. At ClearScore we want to make a service that people love and most importantly that they want to share with their family and friends. Reichheld argues that the ‘Net Promoter System’ should be a crucial measure of success for all companies. If people want to promote ClearScore to others, that’s a great sign and if they don’t, then we should listen to their feedback.
Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead, Sheryl Sandberg
The world of tech may seem like one that’s male-dominated, and this is something we want to address at ClearScore, by making sure we hire the best people regardless of gender. This book comes recommended by one of our front-end developers as its full of advice about ways women can put themselves forward in the workplace, all from one of the most successful women in tech.
The Phoenix Project, Gene Kim
This one’s a novel but it’s all about the world of tech and IT. This might not be traditional material for a novel, but it’s got a firm place on our bookshelves for being both a smart and enjoyable read as anyone who’s ever worked in these areas will find themselves relating to Bill, the main character.
And if none of those are your thing, we’ve also got some classic business books like No Logo and best-selling fiction like The Girl on the Train, a few useful maps of London, two pot plants and we’re pretty sure you could find Justin’s book Why should anyone buy from you? hiding somewhere on the shelves.
