Learning is the first function in the definition of leadership, and it is the only one that belongs solely to us. We alone are responsible for our learning. Redefining leadership means that we replace the unconscious, undirected learning approach of nearly all leaders with a directed, focused process that improves our leadership practice and expands the range of situations in which we create group excellence. 


ReDefine offers a range of tools to develop your functional leadership, to meet the individual realities of your learning environment and preferences. We need new ideas to turn into behaviors, and we need regular reminders to pay attention to our leadership practice. The steps below outline this general structure. We also update with new information, ideas, seeing exercises, and reviews every few days, so make a plan to come back. There are always opportunities to learn, but if we choose to stop learning then we choose to stop growing.
