Why you have to practise leadership

“There is an ancient saying that knowledge is only a rumour until it is in the muscle.”

I noticed that on the ‘Embodied leadership’ course description over at Roffey Park’s centre in the UK. I don’t think I posted on it here before. Hope not.

It’s true isn’t it: it’s in the doing that we cement the knowing. Leadership talk is not nearly as important as leadership doing.

An additional thought: a psychologist friend of mine who specialises in habits says it takes up to seven weeks of consciously trying a new leadership practice (even something as simple as expressing appreciation) to engrain it as a habit.
