Thought for today:
‘Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other. ‘
— John F Kennedy

I heard this quote on a webinar this week (on coaching) and couldn’t remember who said it.
So as usual, I looked it up, did my best to fact check it, and present it here.
I’ve had a week of working with (coaching, training, and advising) senior managers, CEOs and Leaders.
I am hugely encouraged by how much a new generation of leaders want to learn and continue learning.
I often work with Exec MBA graduates and I learn so much from them.
It is an MBA by osmosis on my part.
They use language which would have been unthinkable not so long ago.
Emotional intelligence; empathy; nurture; learn; coach; grow.
All focussed on the development of the people they serve.
It really makes me feel good about the new management and leaders rising to the top of their professions and companies.
