“To learn, read. To know, write. To master, teach.” Teabag
The thought is powerful and has great application for leadership. Think for a moment.
Leaders must be students, learning from every possible source. Leaders must also produce what they learn in a format that others can use for years to come. Write it down!
The last part of this thought encompasses the whole purpose of this post. Experience has demonstrated that mastery takes place when we teach. As we learn, we write down thoughts in preparation for teaching, which strengthen our knowledge of the subject. Teaching the material then leads to mastery of the subject.
