Read to Lead

Read to Lead

“People who don’t read cheat themselves.  By not reading, you limit what you can achieve, make mistakes you could avoid, and miss opportunities that could improve your life.  Soon, as the gaps in your knowledge become apparent to others, you must reconcile yourself to not being taken seriously.” – Morton C. Blackwell, Founder and President of The Leadership Institute.
