Noel Tichy in his book, The Cycle of Leadership: How Great Leaders Teach Their Companies to Win, HarperBusiness, 2002, writes that “winning organizations are teaching organizations” where “everybody teaches... everybody learns.” In such highly interactive environments, knowledge and understanding is generated and it makes everyone smarter.
As he notes, “Successful leaders are given stewardship over assets in the form of people, capital, information, and technology. Their job is to make them more valuable and to keep making them more valuable into the future.... In this environment, the key to winning is a leader's ability to raise the collective intelligence of his or her team and keep its members aligned, energized and working to please customers.”
Having spent over 25+ years helping people and organizations through the world of leadership and strategic level change, I have witnessed exceptional leaders who have raised the collective intelligence, created alignment, and helped people deliver incredible customer service. These particular leaders all have one common characteristic, namely they are learners. They read constantly. They teach continuously and they seek out in-depth and quality time to explore new ideas.
