We’re all learning and development bookworms, aren’t we?

We know we must embrace the traits of today’s successful leaders and develop a language for effective interaction in our workplace. However we frame it, the message is clear: the way we communicate and share information is critical.

So on that note… sharing is caring, right? Here are the books we can’t put down and the ones we know you’ll find invaluable in your L&D and HR quest for success.

A little book… Just for you!

So much about the world we live and work in has changed: how we interact, collaborate, and follow… With this, a new type of leader has emerged and the traditional view of what constitutes a good leader has substantially shifted.

Along with some of the most respected L&D and HR professionals around from companies such as Toyota GB, Premier Foods, ITV, The Post Office, and Transport for London, we’ve developed The Little Book For… series – a little book, just for you!

At t-three, we help you improve performance through your people. We work hard to inspire individuals, teams, and organisations to change, grow and succeed.

We are a committed, passionate bunch who love what we do. But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what they’re saying about us…

So, what are they all saying?

  • “Clearly the best development programme I have ever attended. I am convinced as an individual and as a leadership population we have progressed massively in the last two years.”

  • “Working with the t-three group helped in understanding what the Leadership programme should focus on – and it has been a key part of the transformation at London Underground.”
