Why CEOs Read Books
Why is always an interesting question. The answer — not so much.
Here is an interesting statistic: Fortune 500 CEO, on average, read 4 to 5 books a month! Regular Joe’s statistic is less than 1 book a year. Why do leaders who spend most of their time interacting with others spend time reading books? Is there anything more than the obvious- knowledge is power? I think it has got to do with words like rapport, credibility, trust — building blocks of human relationships — be it in sales, career management and even leadership. Let me explain.
