Borrowing From The Best

17 01 2012

A few years ago I taught with a guy who was the best teacher I had ever come across. I asked him what made him so good and his response floored me, “Find out what other good teachers do and steal their stuff.” Speaking tongue and cheek the guy who was most respected for his effective teaching methods, work ethic, and relatability was very quick to give the credit away.

Leadership is the same thing, find out what others are doing well, learn from them, and implement their stuff. I put together a list of men and women in leadership development that I respect. I look to their leadership blogs often for a way to “sharpen the saw” so to speak, making my LIFE journey in the 8F’s run a little more smooth.

Enjoy their these great leadership blogs, but do me a favor, please come back to my site once in awhile 🙂

So much to learn and so many places to learn it. It is an inspiration going around and reading many of the blogs and visualizing my own some day. It creates a hunger for round table. No worries about your blog though, I peak at it daily, only a few get that consistency. Keep up the great work.
