Here are some of the top books I recommend for learning more about compliance basics and the emotional intelligence needed for a career in this industry.
The Complete Compliance and Ethics Manual. Minneapolis: Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics, 2019. Written by close to 100 authors, each experts on their subspecialty, this book covers the basics and more that every compliance and ethics professional should know.
Grant-Hart, Kristy. How to Be a Wildly Effective Compliance Officer: Learn the Secrets of Influence, Motivation and Persuasion to become an In-Demand Business Asset. London: Brentham House Publishing Company, 2016. If you are tired of compliance textbooks, buy this book. Grant-Hart gets into why interpersonal skills and influence are necessary to a compliance officer’s success.
