Great leaders read. It’s a short sentence but it is layered with meaning.  What is it about reading that makes it such a universal passion among people who are best suited to lead people and organizations?  Is it that leaders read books that contain all the answers?

Becoming a Data-Driven Organization

Human beings collect data points from the day they are born. As they grow and experience more things, they put those data points into a context.

(Example: “Do I have enough data points to know that I will get a headache? I do! Let’s NOT do that,” thinks my learned 5-year old. “HUH?” says my curious 4-year old, followed by a very surprised, “Ow!” He needs more data points.)
