A lot of below recos are around behavioral psychology / org behavior driven. Not sure if that's what you are asking for but here you go . . . .Drive by Dan pink. Nudge by Robert thaler. Flow by mihalyi cziksentmihalyi. Mindset by Carol dweck. Grit by Angela duckworth. Smarter faster better and the power of habit by Charles duhigg. Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise – Anders Ericsson
Essentialism by Greg McKeown. The war of art by Steven pressfield. A mind for numbers by Barbara Oakley.
Deep Work – Cal Newport.
So Good they can’t ignore you – Cal Newport.

Suggest you watch their TED talks/a youtube book summary to find if the premise interests you. I'm trying to consciously do this as well.

Hello,

I need some help/suggestions. My YOE is 1.3 yrs and my tech stack is Python, SQL, and i have worked on the tool Informatica (Informatica is an ETL tool)

I am trying to switch and I want to change my tech domain. I want to become a data analyst.

But whenever I appear for interviews, I don't get shortlisted after the final round, because I have work experience in Informatica. Honestly, i don't want to work on this tool anymore and I want to change the technology domain.

Hey everyone! New to the platform. I’m in house counsel at an aerospace/AI company in CA & looking for some comprehensive, practical commercial contracts training.

I’m one year out of law school, and a challenge of in house for me so far has been the lack of sustained and focused training in certain areas, though I know there’s no substitute for hands-on work.
