Leaders must be perpetual learners.
Donald Norris, president of Strategic Initiatives, identifies perpetual learning as “much more than lifelong learning on steroids. It is different from lifelong learning in every way.” He clarifies by stating that it involves learning every day, viewing growth in knowledge as a way of life rather than an activity of life.
This type of learning produces three benefits:
…a better understanding of leading people.
…a better vision of the future.
…a better love for life.
When driven to learn from every person we meet, book we read, and experience in life, we grow as leaders.
