Losing focus on personal learning can hinder job performance and suppress leadership development.
- By Dave DeSouza
In the technology-filled personal and work environments most people operate in today, there is little time for reflection. It is too easy to just let the flow of information take control of thoughts, time and effort. The consequence is that people fail to nurture their personal values and strengths that form the foundation of leadership development. Stepping back to make a personal self-assessment requires backing away from the barrage of electronic devices and instant information that bombards people in their personal and professional lives.
