Leaders are Learners

Leaders understand that the mind is the most important tool, and one must take the time to sharpen it constantly. Therefore, leaders are constantly in training as Howard Hendricks puts it, “if you stop learning today, you stop leading tomorrow.”

According to Stan Toler, author of “Minute Motivators for Leaders”, leaders practice with the discipline of an athlete, read the manuals and do the roadwork. They also seek the counsel of good coaches who will provide instruction to hone their skills without discouraging them.”

This is why leadership training needs to be an important component in our education system. For the best way to learn about leadership is to become one!
