What are your best habits?
Drinking enough water? Brushing your teeth? Working out?
Stopping to have fun? Playing? Getting outside? (It’s spring! Why aren’t you outside?)
How about … professional development for yourself and your managers?
A few weeks ago, someone commented to me that leadership development should be a regular habit like tooth-brushing.
I can’t begin to say how much I agree.
So, what happens when you think of professional development as a regular habit?
How would that change your approach to …
- Offering and requesting feedback?
- Addressing mistakes and problems?
- Discussing diversity, equity, and inclusion?
- Considering what, when, and how to delegate?
- Exploring what it means to coach a team member?
Professional development is often considered to be both time-consuming and expensive.
Thinking of it as a daily habit means it’s simply part of the day: neither time-consuming nor expensive.
I think this could be transformative to teams and companies.
