No-Time-to-Read

As I’ve often stated and written: Leaders are readers. In addition to the books that I read completely, I read several books via professional summaries. I do this through my subscription to Leaders Book Summaries. As you can see here on my blog, they are a main sponsor and that means I believe in them and their service to leaders. I don’t always have time to read a full book and their summaries give me all the essentials parts of the book that I need.

More often than not, I use the leaders summaries as a preview to the book to see if I want to get a copy and read the whole thing. That’s what happened with Deep & Wide: Creating Churches Unchurched People Love to Attend¬†or Fusion: Turning First-Time Guests into Fully-Engaged Members of Your Church, I read the summary first and then I ordered the book for me and my Leadership Team and we all read it. I highly recommend this service to busy leaders and I can say that I’m always very satisfied with the books they choose to summarize. They even pick classics and older books that I either haven’t read or haven’t thought of in years. I will often use the summary to go over key points with my staff and use as quick lessons at our meetings.

I can’t recommend these summaries enough as a leader of a team or staff. Each month they choose classic books on leadership and leading teams or people – books that make you a better leader. If you will take the time to utilize this resource, it will sharpen your leadership skills.
