How do you continue to grow and develop as a leader?
“Books, podcasts, mentoring…anything I can get my hands on. I’m convinced of one thing - you never ‘arrive’ as leader. In other words, leadership requires continual investment. In a world where everything else is evolving, so should our ability to lead well, serve others and improve outcomes.
I’m a big fan of micro content - these bite sized nuggets from people that have pioneered this leadership terrain and are willing to share information, best practices, humble experiences and lessons learned. My go-to leadership podcasts are Defining and Adapting Your Leadership Style as well as Club Capital Leadership Podcast.
There is inward work that is required to develop as a leader. Self-awareness is often improved over time and the best way to get there is being mentored and mentoring. If it’s true that you can’t see yourself through your own eyes, find another trusted individual with a very different vantage point that can challenge you and encourage you and consistently remind you it’s a journey, not a destination.”
