Leadership and Lifelong Learning

Written by  Duane Bailey

President John F. Kennedy once said, “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”

Take a moment and think about the leaders you know. Leaders of industry, thought, government, sports and your community…the people who inspire us to give our very best are the ones who do not assume they know everything. They know they will make mistakes from time to time.  And they trust the people they lead to help them when they ask for answers to some of their toughest challenges.

Leaders who are lifelong learners are approachable. They ask questions and they encourage open and honest feedback. They foster a culture where team members tell them what they need to hear, not what they want to hear.  They encourage others to take risks and they embrace each failure as an opportunity to learn.

A commitment to lifelong learning. Few attributes define the character of a leader more than this one.
