Good Leaders Never Stop Learning

Good Leaders Never Stop Learning | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

What makes a leader the most? To find out the answer, this Ivey professor interviewed more than 30 leaders around the world, capturing their observations on what it takes to make a truly connected and effective leader. Those observations, revealed in this article, confirm and validate what many of us hope that a good leader ought to be made of.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Leading is an ongoing project. It involves listening and working with people.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, June 1, 4:41 PM

Good leaders never stop learning. They follow a challenging and never-ending path of learning, which requires keeping an open mind.

Classics ~ Adult Learning Theory & Andragogy Slideshare ~ Malcolm Knowles

Highlights that apply to technology training & learning, as relevant today.


Why specifics are being taught  (commands, functions, operations...)


Learning is task oriented within a context of common, needed tasks, not memorization


Teaching accounts for the wide range of backgrounds of learnings  (different levels / previous experience of learners)


Allows for self-direction, discovery - offering guidance through mistakes, offering help in learning if needed

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

All learning should be premised on the learner actively taking a role in their own learning.

A good visual summary of the classic work of Knowles, useful as a refresher of the basics.  The SlideShare author has also encouraged free sharing of the "Presentation of Andragogy." ~ D
