"Change might not be fast and it isn’t always easy. But with time and effort, almost any habit can be reshaped.” - Charles Duhigg
Volume 11 Letter From the Editor:
Over the past twelve months, The Art Of has had a number of opportunities to work with and learn from Charles Duhigg, New York Times Bestselling author of The Power of Habit.
In doing so, I’ve become absorbed with habits and how they impact various aspects of business and life. This spring at The Art of Leadership for Women in Toronto we are thrilled to feature blockbuster author Gretchen Rubin. In her latest book, Better Than Before, Gretchen investigates the multiple strategies she’s identified that help us make and break our habits. Rubin helps us understand that habits are the invisible architecture of a happy life, and when we are able to change our habits, we are able to change our lives.
In studying the habits of successful business leaders, I came across a collection of common themes. Both continuous learning and mentorship consistently rise to the top of the list. I’m a strong proponent of mentorship and in my experience mentors don’t need to be experts. The very act of talking to someone else can help you find creative solutions to your business challenges.
