Ego gets in the way of self-improvement. As leaders, we need to be careful not to think too highly of ourselves. In fact, if we begin to think of ourselves as special or extraordinary, we will most likely be ineffective leaders. At the heart of leadership development is humility, and a willingness to embrace the idea that none of us ever arrive. We don’t get there.
Denial is the greatest obstacle to leadership development, and believing we have arrived is a form of denial. We can’t become better if we aren’t honest with ourselves. Self-Improvement requires genuine truthfulness. We must be willing to be honest before we can improve as leaders. While personality traits and talents can make leading easier for some people, great leadership is developed through a continuous process of self-reflection, education, and experience.
This presentation will provide you with new insights, and challenge you to think critically about your approach to leadership development.
