Harry S. Truman said, “not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”
It’s easy to get bogged down in our day-to-day lives, reading elevates us above the daily life. It can inspire us with stories of great accomplishments. It can give us new ideas. It allows us to step back and view things from a different vantage point.
Our direct experiences are limited , we can build experiences through reading
By reading we can learn from the experiences of virtually unlimited numbers of successful people.
Research and evidence demonstrate the many benefits of reading, especially for those who lead others. According to Harvard Business Review:
“Evidence suggests reading can improve intelligence and lead to innovation and insight. Some studies have shown, for example, that reading makes you smarter through “a larger vocabulary and more world knowledge. Reading — whether Wikipedia, Michael Lewis, or Aristotle — is one of the quickest ways to acquire and assimilate new information. Many business people claim that reading across fields is good for creativity. And leaders who can sample insights in other fields, such as sociology, the physical sciences, economics, or psychology, and apply them to their organizations are more likely to innovate and prosper. Reading can also make you more effective in leading others. Reading increases verbal intelligence (PDF), making a leader a more adept and articulate communicator.”
