You'll be a better nonprofit leader when you listen to audio books!
You want to enjoy leadership more, find you are making a greater difference, feel happier and more satisfied in life and rid yourself of a bit of the daily turmoil you feel. Doesn’t that pretty much sum up what most leaders are looking for? Perhaps you also want a little more love, a smaller waistline, and an increase in your bank account. That’s not a bad list of desires.
Striving for more is a good thing. Yes, we need to be grateful for what we have, but a healthy determination to continue to grow, figure out the next challenge and navigate our way to a greater sense of peace in work and life is really the essence of aging.
New insights lead to growth
Learning from our mistakes, failures, and setbacks, as well as our achievements, wins and successes, happens best when we gain new information that challenges our current way of thinking and behaving. The different material assists us in finding fresh strategies, adjusting our actions or shifting our mindsets to get improved results. At other times, the insights we gain affirm we are on the right path. One way to get new ideas to challenge your assumptions, perspectives, and values is to read.
But who has time to read?
Let’s boil it down to some basic truths about leadership, learning, and life.

What I realized was that I’ve always listened to books. From the Steven Covey 7 Habits of Highly Effective People cassette tapes to the David Allen time management revolution Getting Things Done CDs boxed set. I’ve been a listener for years and years. I used to borrow audio CDs from the library to take them on business trips so I could drive and learn. Now, I still borrow some audiobooks from the library, but most often, I use Audible. I think you should too!
Let me tell you why you need an Audible account and how easy it is to use.
