Welcome to Love Mondays, a weekly newsletter designed as a 3-minute hit to fire up the other 10,077 minutes of your week.

Leaders are learners

Leadership and learning go hand in hand and once we've freed some mental space through *unlearning, we'll have the capacity to turn our focus to the new skills and capabilities we want to grow and acquire.

(*see last week's Love Mondays)

What are you interested in learning this year? Write it down. 

Consider: what's holding you back from learning what you want to learn?

Practice: taking the time to invest in your own knowledge and skill development.

Decide to: prioritise learning for you and your team.

Practice makes possible

Deloitte's 2021 Global Human Capital Trends Report found that 72% of executives worldwide identified “the ability of their people to adapt, reskill and assume new roles” as a priority for navigating future disruptions. Continuous learning is crucial to thrive in a constantly changing world and achieve personal and professional success.

But we need a rapid and sustainable learning regime that is designed for the dynamic world we live in. One of my major inspirations in this topic area is best-selling author Josh Kaufman. In his book "The First 20 Hours: How to Learn Anything Fast", he details a systematic approach to learning any new skill with around 20 hours of deliberate practice (ideally over a relatively condensed period of time). His 4 step method details how to deconstruct complex skills, maximize productive practice, and remove common learning barriers. 

With endless opportunities for learning at our fingertips, the challenge becomes choosing what to focus on. So, what do you want to start learning this week?

Maybe it's practical strategies and tools to level up your leadership. If it is, it's not too late to join me in the Epic Leadership Challenge - click the image below to find out more.
