During the past 15-20 years I have met a lot of managers and leaders that just do their job day in and day out. I always ask myself; why do they not practice to become an even better leader? I read books, I read a lot of blogs, I write down things I have done good, and things I have not done good to find out what could I have done differently. I will never become good enough, and that is GREAT. This is a field that I always can improve on. Sometimes I feel alone, what do other people do? What do you do to practice your leadership skills? I would like to hear from other people that practice leadership to evolve as leaders. Do you have any good strategies? Do you have some recommended reading?
If you have a great book to recommend for me to become even better, please drop a line in the comment field. I am still puzzled about the lack of practicing among leaders and find this hard to believe, is it just that they do not want to share their secret? Or are they just slackers?
