We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
The best organizations spend lavishly on training. They know that their mission depends upon it. Training benefits the organization, the individual and the larger society within which they operate.
The best leaders invest extravagantly in their own ongoing program of education and training. They do not wait for permission. They find a way to “always be learning” from books, audiobooks, webinars, masterminds, coaches and courses. The top CEOs we know are learning machines. They set the example for the entire company.
The key of course is to not just attend a course but to put it into action. To implement what you learn as soon as you return to the office (or the field).
How much do you personally invest in your own learning and development? Does your organization have a meaningful program that actively encourages everyone to receive training every year?
