Reading Can Make You A Better Leader!


“Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.”   Margaret Fuller

Learning comes through many approaches; you learn from your experiences, from formal training, and from the written word.  I have learned much from those authors who took the time to publish their leadership knowledge and experiences.  

Most of these books are ageless and contain leadership ideas that are as viable today as they were when they were first published.  Libraries and Used Book Stores (even on-line) make these books accessible for even the most modest budget.
