Nine words on leadership and learning

“For the rest of my life, I want to…”

Can you finish the sentence?

This is the question posed by Learning and Leadership expert Kevin Eikenberry, here.

What do you want to learn about for the rest of your life? What holds your attention enough to keep you motivated and interested, especially during tough times?

When you have a clear purpose and strong desire to learn…well, you are unstoppable. And, if you can combine this drive with a constant beginner’s mind…well, you are my hero. These are nine powerful, wonderful, vulnerable words.

Leaders inspire and help others to finish their sentence, or turn it on its head, or keep you out of your comfort zone, who pose more questions instead of answers and who stress the importance of a mission.

Sometimes, nine words are enough.

  1. Oh how you always get me thinking, Lindsey! I love how you’ve described these nine words as both powerful and vulnerable. Revealing our purpose is both, isn’t it?

    So here goes: For the rest of my life, I want to learn what it takes for human beings to stand out and belong at the same time.

    Thanks for this insightful exercise.
