Craft Your Leadership Journey

Updated: Jan 20

Leadership Quote
Man sculpting himself by Uruguayan artist Yandí Luzardo
"Leadership does take work. And it should. If you aspire to be a leader, you ought to treat leadership as a craft, you ought to become a student of it, and you ought to work at it. And if you're not willing to work at it, well, you get what you give."

-Douglas Conant

This quote highlights how leadership requires intentional focus and efforts to develop it like any other craft. As a student of leadership, leaders need to be curious about the craft, willing to examine their leadership journey, learn more about it, and put what they have learned into practice.  

We can only expect great results if we are willing to put what we have learned into practice and develop leadership skills. 

Leadership is a journey and not a destination. It requires us to constantly work at it to be exceptional leaders.

Craft your leadership journey.
