I was reminded recently of a quote by John F Kennedy:
"Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other"
As a leader and a trainer, you can see why I would appreciate this one!
I fully believe that as a leader my job is not just to develop my team, but also to recognise the potential in them, leverage their existing talents, to encourage them to see themselves for who they are and give them the confidence they need to become the people that they can be.
I also think that no matter how much we learn there is still infinitely more that we could learn, but also because when I train someone I want to inspire them to push the boundary of the subject, to learn more than I could ever teach them.
Then I was reminded of another quote, this time by Socrates:
Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel
Since my post a few weeks back on Leadership Quotes, I have received a few requests for quotes on training, development and learning so here goes...
Hope you find them as inspiring as I do! As usual, the presentation is available for download on my blog: http://wp.me/p37qal-nK
