As we continue to do more with less in the travel and expense space, juggling multiple priorities from the business and employees, and generally try to ‘have it all‚’ this book gave me great ideas to maximize every second of my time both personally and professionally.”
- The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything by Ken Robinson with Lou Aronica
Recommended by Jeffrey Bastings, Sr. Manager of Accounts Payable, Employee Business Expense & Corporate Card, Verizon. Basting states, “This book opened my eyes to a new and fresh perspective in connecting my own passion to my work life. I often tried to separate my work life from my home life until I read this book and realized I could use my passion and talents within the workplace. It sparked more creative ideas, which led to innovative conversations. I’m now motivated to look for these creative and innovative ways to improve how we do things to open up efficiencies. I’ve seen myself grow individually, which has resulted in me sharing what I‘ve learned with others to help motivate them in their careers as well.”
