Reading and your professional development goals

Reading is fun and has many benefits, regardless of your age. It’s a key component of education and professional development. It also has immediate and long-lasting health benefits such as increased cognitive function, memory, vocabulary, empathy and decreased levels of stress.

Available in the Center for Career Development’s career and professional development platform, Skillsoft Percipio, we recommend two videos: “Improving Your Reading Comprehension” and “Reading Habits That Slow You Down”. We also recommend checking out the book, “Living a Leadership Lifestyle: A Guide for New and Aspiring Leaders” by Ross Emerson, available in the Leader Transitions channel in Skillsoft Percipio. For access to Skillsoft Percipio or questions, please contact us at 901-227-3844 or
