Everyone Has a Reading List…But who has a movie list?
Of course I read. I have to stay relevant. So, I find my colleagues and professors’ reading lists very helpful. I even have a few essentials that I like to give to my students. And, I’ve also (don’t tell anyone) taken some books off of their lists, too!
But, do you know what I find a lot more entertaining than my reading list? My movie list! There are so many I-O related scenarios in movies and literature. Forget business, in general. I don’t even want to get started. “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” (great movie, even better book!) was not just a murder mystery, but a forensic finance thriller! “Wall Street” and “Boiler Room” are both great for business ethics lessons. Office Space is an I-O Psychologists’ nightmare! “So, what would you say….you do here?”
