Incoming: Reading and Leading


Fletcher School Dean James Stavridis in SIGNAL Magazine.  You can read the article HERE.

"Once we understand how important reading is for leading, the next step of course is deciding what books to read. Here, the ultimate dilemma for any reader is apparent. There are an infinite number of books and an extremely finite number of hours to devote to actually reading. Where to start?"

I am ever hopeful that he will follow this new book with something about writing and leading.  Reading and writing go together more so than "reading and leading"; it follows that writing and leading are inextricably linked, also.

I thought I was a reader. But I am bush league in comparison to Admiral Stavridis or my current leader, Admiral Rogers. They lead, they read, they inspire. The rest of us either aspire or don't care. I aspire.
