COTA CEO Joanna Pinkerton is always eager to pick up a new book.
In fact, when she joined Columbus Business First's Women of Influence podcast a few weeks ago via Zoom, she said she was in the middle of four. Her interests vary from historical fiction to business books that get at the psychology behind performance, books like Questions are the Answer by Hal B. Gregersen.
But Pinkerton's love of reading doesn't stop at her own nightstand. If she finds a book particularly insightful, Pinkerton holds on to, ready to share it with a colleague she thinks would enjoy it.
"And then I bring into work and I pass them out," Pinkerton said. "I have my own little personal library here at work."
Check out the latest mini-episode of Women of Influence to hear more about Pinkerton's love of reading plus other ways she's unwinding during this stressful time for all of us. You'll also hear some thoughts from me on a show I recommended a few weeks back, Mrs. America, and what a moment in history I never would've known about were it not for the show.
