Leadership Minute: Experience Happens


Aldous Huxley said, “Experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you.” As a leader you will have many experiences that will be your teachers. What you do with those lessons will determine the style and future of your leadership. From your experiences you will learn from mistakes, chart new courses, and hopefully be a better leader as a result. While you may not choose every experience you go through you can choose each lesson you learn. Lead with humility, learn with grace, and go forward with confidence. Experience happens. Make it count.

    I share similar thoughts with my leadership trainees. You learn from every manager/coach/teacher/parent that has ever supervised you. You take the bad and say “I’ll never do that again” and the good and try and duplicate it the best you can when it’s your turn.
