Leadership Kenosha — March 2019

The potential to lead exists in you. If you apply your head, your heart, and your courage, you can learn to lead”. Our March class focused around “The Best Leaders are the Best Learners”.  Upon arrival at the Gateway Technical College Horizon Center, we were welcomed by Zina Haywood, Executive Vice President/Provost for Academic & Campus Affairs. We were given a brief overview of Gateway and we took a guided tour of the Horizon facility.

Since our theme was “leadership and learning”, we quickly moved into our review of the book The Truth About Leadership. This chapter focused on developing leaders through being a life-learner, which takes deliberate practice. It requires setting improvement goals, staying open to feedback, working on strengths and weaknesses, and having the support of others. Understanding that leadership is learnable allows you to be open to opportunities that are all around you. As this month’s presenters, Gia, Jackie, and I challenged the class to go beyond their comfort zones, believe in themselves, and don’t be afraid to learn new things. (more…)
