We can’t remain the same person we were five years ago—or even six months ago.
As we pass our days we encounter new people, new places, and new experiences.
As leaders, we educate ourselves, and then we elaborate on that experience to help educate others.
To educate is to grow; to elaborate is to share that growth with those around you.
When we experience new things, we develop new behavior. We create new action—which, in turn, creates new experiences for the benefit of those around us.
It is our duty as leaders to share what we know, to teach what we learn, and to encourage others to share with us.
If we are looking to truly making a difference in leadership, we need to educate and elaborate. It is the most fundamental cycle of life and leadership.
Lead from within: Be curious and learn. Educate and elaborate. Continue to create the cycle of leadership.
