WashingtonExec Summer Reading List Series:
WashingtonExec asked area executives what books are on their summer reading lists.
Karen Trowbridge is the President and CEO of Trowbridge & Trowbridge – a woman owned and managed IT solutions provider based in Vienna, Va.
Trowbridge said she enjoys reading books about leadership, history and current events in addition to fiction novels.
The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business by Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen offers insight into the direction in which technology is headed in the future, and provides speculation about what that could mean for individuals personally and professionally.
Trowbridge recommended by Steve Gladis, Ph.D. – one of Trowbridge’s mentors and friends — because she said it highlights the power of positivity.
Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg examines women and leadership and attempts to understand why feminine progress in government and industry has stalled. The book aims to empower women to achieve their full potential.
Trowbridge also recommended Inferno by Dan Brown as a summer indulgence for those excited to see what occurs next in the Robert Langdon series.
