103 | Read to Lead – Jeff Brown

You’ve heard it said, “leaders are readers” but has anyone ever explained to you why? Jeff Brown is the guest and lays it all out for us in this episode. After more than 25 years in the radio and music industries, Jeff went boss-free and launched the Read to Lead podcast, a four-time Best Business Podcast nominee. Jeff has interviewed hundreds of leaders in their industry on the podcast, including Seth Godin, Simon Sinek, John Maxwell, Liz Wiseman, Dr. Henry Cloud, Brian Tracy, Nancy Duarte, and Alan Alda.

He’s teamed up with Jesse Wisnewski to write “Read to Lead: The Simple Habit That Expands Your Influence and Boosts Your Career”. Read to Lead offers both the why and the how of developing a personal reading plan that will help build a successful career. It gives practical advice on how to read and retain more, learn new skills, and turn your knowledge into influence.

This conversation is a perfect way to get the year started and has the potential to sell you on a habit that will set the trajectory of your the next decade of your life.
