If you want to be a leader, you need to develop a reading habit.
“Leaders are readers,” says Jeff Brown, my guest on today’s podcast.
Jeff is the host of The Read To Lead Podcast, and the author of a new book called, not surprisingly, Read To Lead.
In Jeff’s book, you will learn
- Why you need to read like your career depends on it.

- The startling simple math formula that will help you decide what to read next.
- How reading makes life more fulfilling,
- How you can find time to read - even if your life is “crazy busy”.
