Leading self is the first element of being an effective leader. Who are you as a person, how do you interact with others? From there, you can lead others and improve management in the organisation. Looking at yourself as a leader and expanding your self-awareness is essential to:

  • Understanding your own work style, extending  your strengths, and addressing the downsides​
  • Understanding how others experience you, and your impact on others
  • Appreciating the alternative approaches of others with different preferences and the varied needs of those you work with
  • Handling conflict better by appreciating that others might see things differently
  • Understanding ways of increasing your resilience
