Nothing is more important to a leader than continual learning. The best leaders I have worked with are sponges for learning, soaking up information from everything around them. They apply this information to generate ideas: new ways to chart their self-development; new ways to guide the experience of change for others; new paths on which to take their organizations.
Learning is food for creative leaders.
The resources offered here are screened or developed
to reinforce the messages and orientations that creative leaders can
use in order to thrive in their challenging roles.
