October Leadership Development Carnival

by Miki Saxon

Do you believe it? 2011 is three quarters over already, but you still have plenty of time to learn.

In fact, no matter how busy you are and how many demands there are for a “piece of you” you can still learn.

Doing so is often a case of modifying whom you learn from as well as your learning methods.

It’s actually pretty simple,

  • recognize that you can learn from everybody, not just those who are senior to you or who agree with your opinions; and
  • take advantage of everything that happens to learn at least one thing you didn’t know—no matter how minor.

Today’s carnival is a good example. Rarely do you have time to read every post, so choose posts from unfamiliar authors and/or with summaries that run counter to your current opinion.

Do this with a truly open and watch how much you learn.
