Learning and Leadership

We believe that learning is essential to leadership. In fact, we frequently say, “leaders are readers!”

Whether or not you are a reader, we hope that you value learning. In the weeks ahead we are going to share our insights on how to learn more effectively, how to accelerate the application of your learning, and how to focus your learning.

Here are some thoughts on learning and leadership (add wine to that equation and you’ve got Leadership Uncorked!)

  • “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.” – John F. Kennedy
  • Learning is not a one-time event or a periodic luxury. Great leaders in great companies recognize that the ability to constantly learn, innovate, and improve is vital to their success. – Amy Edmondson
  • “The more intentional you are about your leadership growth, the greater your potential for becoming the leader you’re capable of being. Never stop learning.” – John C. Maxwell
  • We must act as if our institutions are ours to create, our learning is ours to define, our leadership we seek is ours to become.  – Peter Block
  • “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” – Benjamin Franklin
  • Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. – Mahatma Gandhi
  • “Real learning gets to the heart of what it means to be human. Through learning we re-create ourselves. Through learning we become able to do something we never were able to do. Through learning we reperceive the world and our relationship to it. Through learning we extend our capacity to create, to be part of the generative process of life. There is within each of us a deep hunger for this type of learning.” ― Peter M. Senge
  • Learning is an active process. We learn by doing. Only knowledge that is used sticks in your mind. – Dale Carnegie
  • “One key to successful leadership is continuous personal change. Personal change is a reflection of our inner growth and empowerment.” – Robert E Quinn
  • No one limits your growth but you. If you want to earn more, learn more. That means you’ll work harder for a while; that means you’ll work longer for a while. But you’ll be paid for your extra effort with enhanced earnings down the road. – Tom Hopkins
