We can learn from the mistakes and successes of others. We can learn from people with academic credentials and those who only have experience.
Learning is not the issue. We learn something everyday from someone. We cannot help it or resist it. Everything connected to our senses creates a learning situation.
However, what we learn is what makes the difference.
From a spiritual perspective, are we learning more about God and each other as Christians?
Learning what matters spiritually provides a foundation for lasting leadership. When we consider the importance of learning, remember it is what we learn that is most important.
