Welcome to our very first Book Club inspiration by our startup community. We asked Dan, one of the Co-founders of SENS Food to tell us a bit more about his inspiration.
While talking to Dan, he and his amazing colleague Anežka (Project Manager @ SENS Food) showed us their internal library. They have a whole board where they track who is currently reading which book. It's great to see such culture of constant self-development in a young company like this one. 🤓
Never Split The Difference by Chris Voss
Dan's first recommendation is on a book where former FBI hostage negotiator that will teach you the art of negotiating and importance of emotional intelligence in business.
Dan says - This is a must read from our library. One of the best books I've ever read!
Happier Workplaces Build More Profitable Businesses by Tony Hsieh
Second and really enthusiastic recommendation is #1 New York Times bestseller written by founder and CEO of Zappos, online she and clothing retail company famous for their culture. The book explains hard facts on how happier company culture benefits your profits.
This is the kind of book every founder should read and learn from when leading a company - Dan said while showing us the book in their library.
To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others by Daniel H. Pink
The last book Dan left us with is a book that will give you a fresh look at the art (and science) of selling. This piece will teach you the basics of elevator pitch, how to persuade employees to work for you and investors to invest in your company.
Happy reading! 🙌🏻
