Leaders Learn

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- May 16, 2012

“Say to wisdom, ‘You are my sister, and call understanding your kinsman…” Proverbs 7:4

Leaders are learners but when they stop learning they cease to lead wisely. Education is an enlightened envoy for leaders who think ahead and who are engaged in effective execution. If a leader does not assess the facts of a situation and operate in reality, he loses any advantage he might possess. Circumspect living is the life of a leader who is ever learning.

He or she continually asks questions like, “How can we better understand what the customer wants and needs?” “How can I get out of the way as the leader, and support the team to be successful?” “How can our organization go from good to great by integrating and sustaining industry best practices?” Leaders that learn ask the right questions, get the most accurate answers, and are able to make the wisest decisions.

“But Jehoshaphat also said to the king of Israel, “First seek the counsel of the LORD.”
1 Kings 22:5

Furthermore, leaders learn by listening to the Lord and to the wisdom found in His Word. Indeed, it is not a one time educational event, but the ongoing purging of pride, pretense, and prayerlessness. Wisdom becomes a beloved sister whom you go to for counsel. Humility grows into a trusted friend with whom you confide. The Holy Bible is your defense and armor against the assault of unwise thinking.

Therefore, read, study and apply the Word of God regularly to your life. Read books that bring out bright examples of other leaders worth emulating. Learn by listening to teachers who communicate truth with clarity and conviction. Learn from your mistakes and do not repeat them. Learn forgiveness from your family, service from your friends, and yet learn to love your enemies.

“If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.” Philippians 2:1-2

Prayer: What life lessons do I need to currently learn so the Lord can entrust me with further educational opportunities?

    I am the owner of JustCBD brand (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently planning to expand my wholesale side of business. It would be great if someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance ! I thought that the most effective way to do this would be to reach out to vape stores and cbd stores. I was hoping if anyone could suggest a dependable site where I can purchase CBD Shops B2B Email Marketing List I am already checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the best choice and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

  6. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you should publish more on this issue, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people don’t talk about such topics. To the next! All the best!!
