I am always looking for opportunities to expand my knowledge base: learn something new, refine existing thoughts, add a new perspective, or stumble across the unknown. As a cyclist, there is a refrain that goes through my mind- ‘always be pedaling’. So may people I ride with have a tendency to put effort into the pedals when necessary and then coast the downhills. If power can be applied to the pedals and the result is a favorable use of energy then I pedal. I believe the same is true for professional development. If an opportunity exists to learn, I take advantage of the opportunity.
I stumbled across the “How To” section of the Wall St. Journal online today. Great brief interviews with CEOs of Fortune 500 companies about leadership and managing.
How do you develop professionally?
