When we think about leadership development, we probably think about workshops, podcasts, white papers, and business books. We understand the importance of learning to benefit ourselves and our organizations. Unfortunately, after putting in a full day (or more) of work, we find we don’t have the energy to read novels. Melanie Bell joins Kevin to talk about how reading fiction can also help with our leadership development. Studies have indicated that different parts of our brains are activated when we read fiction vs. nonfiction. Further, business books break down the problem to the principle. In fiction, the characters are complicated so, we don’t just jump to conclusions. The stakes are lower, so we can take a breath and think about the situation.
