5 Reasons Reading Makes You a Better Leader

5 Reasons Reading Makes You a Better Leader

In the business world, there are few skills more important than leadership. Being a truly great leader means inspiring team members around you, pursuing your next goal and building up the business to success. And while some people may have natural leadership abilities, great leadership can also be learned, strengthened and refined. How do you become a better leader? Through practice, learning and… reading?

It turns out, one of the best ways to become a better leader is through consistent reading. As President Harry Truman once said, “Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.” Reading offers a variety of benefits to business professionals, particularly in strengthening leadership skills. Check out these five reasons reading makes you a better leader.

1. Reading improves cognition.
By now, most of us probably know that reading makes you smarter. Maybe you remember your elementary school teacher telling you this during “quiet time.” Those words still ring true, and for business professionals, reading is a valuable tool to use in improving cognition. Research conducted by Anne E. Cunningham compared the general knowledge between readers and television watchers. Readers not only knew more information, but were also able to decipher misinformation better than their television counterparts. In other words, reading improved their cognition and judgement, both critical skills for strong leadership.

2. Reading refines communication.
As a leader, great communication is vital in the business community. Fortunately, reading also helps refine and sharpen your communication skills. When we read across a variety of different topics, we pick up new vocabulary to add into our language regime, which then transfers into our speaking and writing. In fact, according to Cunningham, any books, magazines or other written texts we read as adults actually use double or triple the number of rare words we hear on television. This enhanced vocabulary and thought-processing improves our communication skills for the business world.

3. Reading strengthens empathy.
When we read books—particularly fiction books—we have the unique opportunity to walk in someone else’s shoes, experience a new environment and see the world from a completely different perspective. These connections strengthen our ability to empathize with other human beings. Reading gives us deep insights into human nature, and the improved cognition from reading helps these insights actually stick with us, strengthening our emotional IQ. This allows leaders to better identify with people, which can improve overall team performance.

4. Reading provides opportunities.
Even when you look at reading from a career perspective, you can see the variety of benefits it carries, such as providing opportunities. Readers love to share books or articles among themselves. They discuss case studies, market research documents, business articles or even biographies and fiction books. All of this communication gives readers the opportunity to connect and engage with other leaders in their field.

5. Reading inspires youth.
As we age, our brains can deteriorate and fall to the wayside—unless we keep them mentally activated. Research by Keith E. Stanovich has shown that consistent reading as we age keeps our brains young and sharp, which is ideal for those who want to be in business leadership. In fact, some studies even suggest exercising our brains with books and other reading might be able to help prevent conditions like dementia throughout the later years of life. Reading inspires youth, not only in our bodies but also in our brains, which keeps us mentally agile and ready to make sharp decisions in leadership.

There’s no doubt about it: the best leaders are readers. If you want to be a better leader in the business community, consider these benefits from reading. Then, pick up a book and begin your next adventure.
