Curiosity killed the cat but made a GREAT leader
There is a fundamental logic to this being THE most fundamental of core leadership competences.
Without it there is:
- No desire to learn
- No desire to do anything new
- No desire to do anything different
- No desire to wanna be…
- NO desire…..
The list goes on and you can add much more.
The problem also is that much of life depends on the need to have a mind that wants to know more not less. To create more to be more. I have never met anyone who in every way of their being wanted to stay where they are. There is always something.
A GREAT leader I have found needs more than anything to want to know the what, how and the when, and in doing so they know that they need more than themselves to achieve and deliver.
Curiosity without the “doing” simply gives learning.
Doing without “learning” makes for more of the same.
“More of the same” defines a life that does not teach.
“Lack of teaching” creates a long life of sameness.
“Sameness” is not what we want for our children.
We all want the very best for our loved ones.
There are those who simply want to be who they are no more, no less. That is ok for them.
Everyone has something to offer, GREAT Leaders continue to develop everything and everyone around them continually and always.
GREAT leaders know it is their mission to develop and create, nurture and flourish, develop and ignite passion.
GREAT leaders understand that developing the mind and soul and heart is what they need to do.
Is that not the gift we were all given? Is that not the gift we cannot waste?
People are too important….. GREAT Leaders know this
