In this episode, we present Jack Zenger’s keynote address “8 Ways to Combine Development with Your Job.” This is a live recording from our 2015 Extraordinary Leadership Summit held in July.

Leaders today are extremely busy getting their job done. At the same time, they also realize that investing effort in their own leadership development is important. The problem is that when faced with a choice, work seems to always trump personal development. Everyone runs fast and hard and personal development is put off as executives wait and hope for a break in their schedules. 

This a false dichotomy. In this speech, Jack Zenger reveals why work and development should not be seen as competing activities. The reason to combine them is simple. Doing one can accomplish the other. If you choose to do this, you will constantly improve your leadership skills while getting your job done. That, in turn, benefits your organization, your working associates, and most certainly, you. 

Listen to learn 8 specific ways you can bring personal development and your job closer together. Discover how you can transform your daily job activities into a practical leadership classroom and laboratory.
