Leaders behind great organisations are people who have a great appetite to constantly want to learn and grow. We see that in the leadership cases behind Toyota and General Electric. Roshan Thiran of Leaderonomics exalts the act of learning and talks about the relationship of learning and growth in effective leadership.
