This illustrated book has 131 exercises to help a reader “become a clearer thinker, a better listener, a more creative workplace colleague and finally, to rediscover your sense of passion and to notice what really matters to you.” In a discussion with Melissa Kirsch, the editor-in-chief of Lifehacker and author of The Girl’s Guide, it’s possible that we all could learn something. It’s free to attend, but the information may be invaluable.
