Develop Leadership Qualities

Step 7
Making the Most of Spare Moments
(Read to Lead)

To develop leadership qualities it is important to continually feed your mind with knowledge. Not everyone learns in the same way. While many read books for learning new skills, others learn better by listening to recorded programs or audio books. Others learn best on the job or by actually doing the work after watching someone else complete a task. 

Audio books on leadership and self development are powerful tools because you plug in whenever you have a spare moment. For instance, if you're on the bus, driving to work, working out, or doing daily chores - you can listen and learn.

To stay motivated and fully engaged, it’s important to give yourself a daily dose of positive reinforcement. Daily inspirations are a great way to ensure that the wheels of success keep turning. 

Think about how many negative messages you encounter on a daily basis. How much of what you hear on the news or read in the paper actually inspires you to greatness? Most likely, not much of what you hear is helping you to become your best self. 

Your ability to develop leadership qualities is increased exponentially once you become proactive and surround yourself with leadership learning materials, tools and resources. Once you become intentional in your learning you'll experience improved results.  The great news is that there are a ton of wonderful programs, books and other materials that can assist you in your journey.

Perhaps you’ve struggled in school and consider yourself a poor reader, or you just can't seem to find the time to sit down and read. That's where audio books provide a terrific resource for anyone who seeks to learn and grow. 

Every aspiring leader should get in the habit of maximizing your drive time, daily commute, workouts or household chores by plugging into an audio book. It's simply amazing how much you can learn in your spare moments.
