Leaders are Readers

This past week I found myself again immersed in a thought provoking book. The book in question had been a recommendation from a friend. As I sent multiple text messages throughout the week reflecting on what I was reading and thanking him for the loan, I then received an email from an Assistant Principal within one of our client schools. It read, 'I wanted to say thanks for suggesting reading that book. I read it over the weekend and couldn't put it down!' “Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.” - Harry S.
