The Business of Healthcare Podcast with Tara Humphrey

Jan 25, 2023

It’s our third episode of 2023 and to counter any recent effects of ‘Blue Monday’, as ever, it’s my aim to offer some inspiration! So, this week on the podcast, I’m fully focused on my top five, most recently impactful reads, for those seeking empowerment, increased productivity levels and improved communication and leadership skills.  

 These books have truly influenced my approach; both internally at THC Primary Care as a business leader, and in the way I collaborate with the networks and teams within my client-facing portfolio. Each of them has remained an enduring and key reference point when it comes to: 


  • Growing my business 
  • Nurturing and empowering staff  
  • Continually striving to communicate well 
  • Recognising the importance of self-awareness, manifestation, visualisation and remaining positive 
  • Adapting and adopting different approaches to prioritisation, organisation of time and task management
  • Writing down goals, ideas, and giving your ‘second brain’ the stimulation and the respect it deserves
  • Maintaining consistency
  • And finally…. why taking a break from social media might be a good thing…. 


So, in no particular order, the books that you need in your life right now are: 


  1. Twelve And A Half by Gary Vaynerchuk found here 
  1. Manifest by Roxie Nafousi found here 
  1. Hyperfocus by Chris Bailey found here 
  1. Building A Second Brain by Tiago Forte found here
