Chief of Staff by Tyler Parris
Eastside-based executive coach Tyler Parris draws on his experience as a former corporate chief of staff in his first book. Parris writes that chiefs of staff are important because they help organize, coordinate, and manage a company. Parris picked the brains of many chiefs of staff and executives in his research. Parris said that even if a chief of staff isn’t part of your team, the thought process of bringing one on is worth considering. Learn more at Parris’ website, tylerparriscoaching.com. $20

20160216_BusinessBooks__000421 Days to Success with LinkedIn
by Ron Sukenick and Ken Williams
We first met Gnik Rowten in Sukenick and Williams’ first book, 21 Days to Success Through Networking. If his name looks a little unique, it’s worthwhile to point out it’s a palindrome for “networking.” The book follows Gnik through an adventure in learning how to efficiently use LinkedIn to connect with colleagues and new acquaintances. The book will prepare the reader for the moment when an email drops in his inbox that reads, “Hi, I’d like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn.” $16
