Learn Like a Child

by | May 31, 2017 | Actionable Leadership

You create success in your life. To become successful, you need perseverance, hard work, grit, and a lot of passion for learning. You must learn like a child. – Jef Menguin

The best leaders aren’t those with ready answers for everything. No, not the know-it-all type. The best leaders are those who learn like a child.

My son Jefferson Carlos is very eager to learn. He explores the world around him. He is every curious of how things work – from remote controls to light switches, ipad to PC, and door keys to car keys. He is simply to eager to learn how to make things work.

You can create that tiny habit of asking yourself what you can learn from a situation. That tiny habit will make your leadership journey more enjoyable and rewarding. Wherever you are – and whatever you do, ask: what can I learn from this?

Learn like a child. Keep your sense of wonder fresh!

During the last talk I gave, someone asked for some strategies he can use to get himself promoted faster. I thanked him for his courage to ask that question which almost everyone wanted to ask but never did. Filipinos don't ask this of questions in public, most specially when bosses are around.

My simple answer: be linchpin. Be indispensable.

In this post, I will show you how to do that.
