Background

Posted on April 16, 2007. Filed under: Quotes, Uncategorized |

First, a little background info:

I graduated from college 2.5 years ago with a Mechanical Engineering degree. After a lengthy job search, I was hired as a project engineer. I was excited to get the job, but had a glaring problem. I had little managerial, and what I perceived to be NO true leadership experience. So it was back to school, so to speak.

In college, I started reading about leaders I admired as a hobby. After making the leap into a career with so much responsibility, I decided that this hobby would have to evolve into a bona fide study of leadership and its applicable techniques and theories.

My goals for this blog are simple. I intend to share with other developing leaders what I have learned in my short career, as well as learn from other budding and experienced leaders alike who might offer their own experiences up for public consumption.

In the spirit of community, I aim to make this blog as interactive as is possible. It is my hope that we can all gain some insight into what it means to be a leader and how we might each better achieve the level of leadership we seek.

“Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character, sow a character, reap a destiny.”
-George Dana Boardman

We stumbled over here from a different web address and thought I might as well
check things out. I like what I see so i am just
following you. Look forward to exploring your web page yet
again.

First of all I want to say fantastic blog!

I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
I was curious to find out how you center yourself
and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had
a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.

I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be
wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
Appreciate it!

Thanks for finally talking about >Background | The Learning Leader <Loved it!

Appreciating the commitment you put into your blog and
in depth information you offer. It’s awesome to come
across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material.
Fantastic read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including
your RSS feeds to my Google account.

You are so interesting! I do not suppose I’ve truly read anything like this before.
So nice to find another person with some genuine thoughts on this topic.
Really.. many thanks for starting this up.
This web site is something that’s needed on the web, someone with a little originality!

Fine way of explaining, and good article to obtain data concerning my presentation subject matter,
