The leaders who do the most harm to an organization are the ones who think they have arrived; they stop growing, innovating and improving.
Successful leaders never stop learning, according to Tom Wood. Whether they read books, learn new skills, study academic or business journals, learn from their employees or peers, or strive for change through innovation, they all share a passion for wanting to learn new skills and ideas.
Life itself is one long learning experience, and the modern business world is evolving and changing at a breakneck pace. Change is driven through innovation, sound business strategy, and creativity. Companies that stand still and don’t embrace change run the risk of being overtaken either by a competitor or someone who embraces continuous self-development.
As the leader, take personal development seriously because making an effort to learn and grow will help you and your business in the long run. Your leadership journey will only be successful if you dedicate yourself to continual development.
