Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 298

Scripture Passage: Proverbs 1:5
Wise Leaders Are Learners
The Bible says, “A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels.”
The lesson here is this; wise leaders are learners. They learn daily. They recognise that those who stop learning stop growing and start depreciating. Wise leaders also recognise that people only follow leaders who are able to add value to them. And no one can add value to another unless he has first added value to himself via learning. Wise leaders have a plan to develop themselves and they follow that plan to the letter. Wise leaders are men (and women) who value and pay attention to wise counsel. Do you adhere to wise counsel? Are you learning? Do you have a plan for personal growth? No one grows by accident. Wise leaders recognise this truth.
Prayer: Father, give me the grace to be a learner.
