A Pursuit of Lifelong Learning By W. Scott Brown

Are you dedicated to lifelong learning?

Here at Christian Leadership Alliance we believe deeply in lifelong learning. That’s because we know it’s how you will best hone your skills to have lasting impact for Christ.

That’s why we’re offering a dynamic lineup of in-depth, yet practical and biblically-based, learning experiences at The Outcomes Conference in Dallas, April 16-18, 2019.(Don’t miss the Jan. 31 Outcomes Conference savings deadline).

And it’s why we offer state-of-the-art online leadership modules through the Outcomes Academy, including our upcoming Winter 2019 lineup (Jan. 14 registration deadline).

Taking Responsibility for Lifelong Learning

Noted management and leadership expert Peter Drucker recognized the vital importance of lifelong learning. In his book Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Routledge, 1985), Drucker said:

“The correct assumption in an entrepreneurial society is that individuals will have to learn new things well after they have become adults—and maybe more than once… One implication of this is that individuals will increasingly have to take responsibility for their own continuous learning and re-learning, for their own self-development and for their own careers.”

In other words, you’re responsible for your own continuing development as a leader! But you’re also responsible for others. As a leader, you must ensure that your entire team continues to grow through lifelong learning.

Motivational speaker Zig Ziglar once humorously quipped:

“The only thing worse than training an employee and having them leave, is to not train them, and have them stay.”

I think Ziglar’s right. Ongoing training is not only an important retention tool for your organization, it’s also the best way to stay cutting-edge in terms of performance. Ongoing training is vital because an organization never exceeds the competency and skills of its employees.

Earn Professional Credits for Continuing Education

Here at the Alliance, we so believe in the value of lifelong learning, that for The Outcomes Conference 2019, we’re offering multiple paths for earning valuable professional continuing education credits.
