Read to Lead - With Jeff Brown

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 eight research-backed reasons reading will help you build your career.
- How to absorb a book into your bloodstream.
- Tips on creating a lifetime reading habit.


In our conversation, Jeff and I dig deep into:

Why books still matter, and why you should develop an intentional reading habit.
Why you should read physical books and not only audio or summaries.
Why you should read books with views that oppose your own.
Why reading contributes to higher income and more success.
How to remember what you read.
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”.
How to read faster – almost instantly. (You can read a 200-page book in 2 hours).
Do audiobooks “count” as reading?
The “secret” service both Jeff and I use to organize and export our notes from Kindle.
What we’re both reading now, and why.
