At Chronus, we value continuous learning as the surest way to personal and professional growth. With summer upon us, it’s a great time to read up on books, authors and topics you might not have had time for during the first part of the year.
That’s why during the month of August, we’re giving away a book every week from authors and thought leaders we at Chronus learn from all year long. These books hit on powerful topics that can improve your organization’s culture and mentoring initiatives.
