Great leaders never stop learning!
We, human being are creatures of habit. Always in search of a life that is predictable and within our comfort zone. We rely on routine and learned thinking patterns. Patterns that are automatic that we think that these habitual ways of thinking and behaving to be beyond our control.
All leaders were driven to produce results and takes calculated risks pushing beyond their comfort zones. They see mistakes as opportunities to learn.
Here are some reasons why great leaders never stop learning:
1) They set the example for how to lead.
In order to lead others better, leaders have to lead themselves better first. Leaders can develop themselves better and faster by engaging in learning, whether that is through books, events, courses or training programs. They are also the one to also set the example for how others should be leading.
2) They can extract lessons from the experiences of others and themselves.
