[FLR] Why Leaders Must Be Readers | Friday Leadership Report

Happy Friday,

 

Yesterday was world book day. (As an aside there now seems to be a day for everything.)

 

There are many good books & few great books. One of my absolute favourite leadership books is Good to Great by Jim Collins. Great books bring insights that are timeless.
