It’s always wise to move forward by learning from the past. So as we head into a new year, it’s essential for leaders to not only reflect, but LEARN from 2017. Only then will we be able to light a path to leadership success in 2018.
That’s the spirit of this Inc. roundup of 2017 articles about leadership that resonated most with readers.
One look at the list and you’ll see names like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Richard Branson and Tim Cook – making it clear that managers and workplace leaders are drawn to learning from the insights, successes and philosophies of prominent executives.
Some of my favorite articles and learnings from the Inc. list:
Steve Jobs: “Hire smart people, then let them tell you what to do.”
Richard Branson: Encourage and celebrate failure.
Jeff Weiner: “Appreciate three things we often take for granted: health, love and time.
Gates/Branson/Buffet: Communication is key to success in any industry.
I hope you will read the Inc. roundup of articles and consider how these approaches to leadership could impact you going into the new year.
