Here at SFG, we support an ongoing educational culture. One of the ways we do this is holding an employee book club meeting several times per year to share about nonfiction books we’ve read. Additionally, we keep a library of books in our conference room — anyone is welcome to comb through it and take a book home! These books all relate to one of our Four Capitals — Financial, Physical, Intellectual, and Psychological — and offer insight into the approach we are so committed to.
Next time you’re here, be sure to peruse and choose something that could be helpful to you. Below are all of the books we currently have related to Intellectual Capital, and the other capital overviews will be shared in the coming months.
