You like to read fiction, but...

You like to read fiction, but...

Your brain can’t stop spinning on the latest problem you need to solve.  Maybe your company provides occasional leadership training, but the vague platitudes they teach don’t satisfy.

There are so many business books to read, podcasts to listen to, and courses to attend. By the end of the day, your eyes are tired and your brain is exhausted.

Who has the time or energy to read a novel with all of that going on?

Reading fiction takes a back seat. Bookmarks remain stuck in the same places for weeks.

You're left hungry for the skills and confidence that will help you become a more impactful leader - while missing out on something you love to do.

It's yes/and, not either/or

Whether you’re stepping into your first leadership role or already a seasoned leader who has read all the books and done all the training, Leaders Who Fiction will help you meet your next leadership goal.

We facilitate intellectual, business-oriented conversations centered around a selected novel. In our world, reading fiction AND leadership development co-exist.
