Read to Lead

January 28, 2019

"I just sit in my office and read all day."

This is how Warren Buffet, one of the most influential leaders in the business world, describes his day. Sitting. Reading. Learning. While the benefits of reading are limitless, one thing that is not for many of today's leaders is. . .time. Yet there are so many lessons we can learn through reading. For example:

  • What is the single best predictor of one's satisfaction with a boss?
  • Does passion or purpose matter more when recruiting new staff?
  • How might we apply the lessons of FDR, TR, LBJ, or Lincoln to our own context as Doris Kearns Goodwin shares in her latest book, "Leadership in Turbulent Times"?

Jim Mahoney, Educator in Residence, Buckeye Association of School Administrators, Executive in Residence, Ohio University, Voinovich School, and Founder of RedBrick Hill, has written 'book notes' for years, parsing out pertinent pieces for thousands of leaders.  His notes, were never intended to replace reading a particular book, but to provide a flavor for why you should. Whether it's applying salient, proven research points for what makes an effective team, or offering a story to introduce innovation to the community or staff group. Jim has taken key points from his current reads to offer an engaged invitations-only workshop, Read to Lead, for today's leader in education, business, or the public sector.
