Who are you learning from?

With plenty of engaging formats, we all have the ability to expand our understanding through learning

Here’s a question for you to consider: Who are you learning from?

For our roles in our lives, each of us should be able to point to a person or group we are learning from. It is exciting and humbling to think that we are probably not the first people to encounter the issues we are facing—so why not see how others have dealt with the same stuff?

We live in an incredible time where there are more free articles (if you like reading), podcasts (if you like listening), and videos (if you like watching) to help us grow. Sometimes, you have to take what you learn with a grain of salt, but if it helps you think, then it may be worth it. 

  • Are you seeking out new ways how to do stuff? 
  • Are you seeing what current trends are working for other leaders?
  • Do you have a desire to want to learn new stuff?
