Effective leaders come in all shapes and sizes. Effective leaders are willing to work hard and get the job done.

Effective leaders also have habits that they routinely act upon. They know there’s something to be said for acting on good habits.

Today, I want to share with you 5 habits of highly effective leaders.

Highly Effective Leaders Do…

Highly effective leaders know it takes more than mental prowess to lead well. Leading well takes forming great habits that will positively impact you for a lifetime. Well, not only you but those you lead effectively as well.

So, what are these habits of highly effective leaders? I believe highly effective leaders have the following habits:

1. Highly effective leaders make it a habit to learn: Effective leaders know they must constantly take in and process new information. Most effective leaders do this through reading. Yet there are other ways to continue your education.

One of my favorite things to do is collect quotes that ring true to me. I’ll scribble it down in a notebook, paste it into an email, or post it on my Facebook page. A couple of years ago I discovered Evernote.

Since this time, I’ve amassed an even larger amount of quotes. They’re leadership quotes, personal development quotes, relationship quotes, and more.

I believe we can learn a lot from the quotes of leaders that have come before us. These leaders are full of wisdom. It becomes our responsibility to learn from them.

That’s been a driving force behind the collection of quotes I’ve recorded. Today, I’d like to share what I’ve learned from some of the leadership quotes I’ve saved for myself.

Yesterday the world ran on formulas – on all things black and white with tried-and-true wisdom. Today things run on dreams and are covered in gray and fueled by passion. But as it turns out, formulas don’t work well without feeling, and dreams don’t come true without dedication. Enter Wisdom Meets Passion, offering proof that when generations – and their beliefs – come together, something incredible can happen.

Wisdom Meets Passion

That’s the synopsis of Dan Miller and Jared Angaza’s new book Wisdom Meets Passion. It’s their combined effort to show the world that you can’t live your life with only wisdom or passion. You must combine both of them and live a life full of wisdom and passion.
