Follow the Reader . . .

In response to the Communication Survey from the 2011 Classified Professional retreat, a book list has been developed addressing the topic of organizational communication.

We asked five of our “favorite readers” to share a favorite book about communication. Take a moment to read through the list for descriptions of each. The De Anza College Bookstore has a limited supply of these titles for purchase if you are interested.

To facilitate conversation, Classified Senate has partnered with other organizational groups on campus to bring faculty, staff and administrators together to discuss topics covered in the books.


For 2011-2012, we are focusing on  The Thin Book of Naming Elephants: How to Surface Undiscussables for Greater Organizational Success.
