I hope your summer is going great. Someone had asked me earlier this year to recommend a few books he could read to help him with his performance and productivity. In this Harvard Business Review article, it is stated that the leadership benefits of reading are wide-ranging. Evidence suggests reading can improve intelligence and lead to innovation and insight. Reading makes you smarter through a larger vocabulary, more world knowledge and abstract reasoning skills. Reading is one of the quickest ways to acquire and assimilate new information. Reading helps you grow into a better version of yourself and helps you reach your full potential. If you feel stuck, lack a skill and want to achieve greater success in everything you do, make reading a habit. Here are a few book recommendations:
