One interesting question came up while addressing business leaders at CEDA today.
How long does it take to gain mastery? Days? Weeks? Months?
Yet, how long do most training programs last?
Leadership mastery is a lifelong journey of discovery with a commitment to excellence. Great masters are the first to say they've yet to achieve mastery, and pursue each new opportunity to learn with a beginner's mind. Open and ready to absorb.
It's the joy of the learning, versus the end that matters.
