Tom Hood's curator insight, April 16, 2013 7:37 AM

This says it all, "Lifelong learning used to be a cozy catchphrase popular in retirement communities aiming at the PBS/NPR demographic. No more. Today, it is an imperative for a sustained, successful, fulfilling career. And that’s the most important lesson of all. Every single generation. Every one of us."


In the CPA Profession we must change our mindset to one of true learning and skill development from the mindset if learning for strictly compliance. 


Involvement in your professional associations (like MACPA) allows you to gain real life leadership skills and learning from other CPAs in addition to building your network. 


In a world of rapid change and increasing complexity, the winners will be those individuals and organizations that can keep their rate of learning greater than the rate of change. We call this L>C.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 16, 2013 9:27 AM

Learning and leadership are inextricable.

donhornsby's curator insight, July 15, 2013 7:59 AM

(From the article): Teach to learn. Teaching is an amazing learning tool. Find someone whose curiosity dovetails with yours, but where you have more knowledge and/or skills. Mentor this person. Pass on what you know. Engage. Give back. In the doing, your own know-how will be refreshed and replenished. And you will learn from your mentee. I guarantee it. His or her questions will force you to expand your knowledge, and her beginners’ minds will deliver fresh insights. You will be renewed. A variation of this is to find a peer and become learning partners. Two brains are better than one; your curiosity and hers will spark new explorations, your passionate exchanges will strengthen you both.
