Are You a Learning Leader?

Back in my corporate days, one of my employees asked my wife, “Jeff reads a lot doesn’t he?” My wife responded, “No, Jeff studies.”

Reading, and learning from what you’re reading, is a critically important activity for the 21st Century Leader. Learning from what you are reading simply means making a commitment to find at least one thing, no matter how small, in what you are reading that you can apply in realtime.

I believe Leaders become Great Leaders because they consistently do 3 things:

  1. They make the Intangible Tangible for those they lead
  2. They manage the Principle of Perception
  3. They Practice, Practice, Practice

… And it is in this practice step where you show what kind of Learning Leader you are.

Some reading for your learning:

A Whole New Mind – A surprise good read for the leader in the 21st Century – the kind of thinking that will be most valued.

The Transparency Edge – A detailed study of the practices that build the leader’s credibility in the 21st Century.

The Extreme Future – an almost scary read of some trends already building in our new global society.

What Matters Most – a very interesting story of the CSR movement

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.
