by Christopher Barnes and Tim Muma - Sep, 2015

  Are You A Leader-Learner
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2015
Or should that be “Learner-Leader”? Anyway, the question basically is, as a leader, are you pretty much always learning or have you decided that you already know what you need to know to get your job done? I just had a client describe herself as a lifelong learner–and this isn’t the first time I’ve run across that concept. In fact, I’ve applied it to myself as well. To me, learning new things helps keep my brain energized a...
