What’s in a Name? Why 3×5 Leadership?

3x5 Leadership Base

3×5 index cards are my leader learning tool of choice. Every moment is a learning opportunity and I keep 3×5 cards with me at all times to ensure I can record a lesson, idea, or thought in any moment. The 3×5 card is a learned habit from my father, but using a leader learning tool is universal. Ensure you commit to a simple, preferred tool – a green notebook, Moleskin notebook, tablet, or notepad – to continuously learn as a professional and leader.
