Sharpening Tools

I read somewhere that leaders should sharpen tools not blame them. I think this is particularly apt when we consider leadership under the lens of constant learning. The best leaders are the best learners and if we identify a tool that is under-performing or not serving the purpose, we should learn how to get that tool to do the job we want it to do. It might mean repurposing the tool, changing certain aspects or “sharpening” it as mentioned in the opening sentence of this post.

Leaders are sharpeners of tools and are constantly looking to learn new ways of doing things or adapting tools to suit the StockSnap_VXH7L0RF9H.jpgjob to be done.
