Taking the time to be self-aware, to really consider one’s strengths and weaknesses, is not something most leaders do very often. On any given day, we are usually too busy focusing on the seemingly more urgent tasks to take the time for self-reflection. And yet, nothing undermines the effectiveness of a leader faster than failing to admit mistakes and refusing to show we have weaknesses.
Developing and practicing self-awareness may not get the attention it warrants, yet it is one of the most important things leaders can do to raise the performance of both themselves and their organizations. Developing awareness allows us to more clearly and vitally focus on building our strengths while intentionally mitigating and managing our weaknesses. Effective leaders must know and understand themselves. Thankfully, like many things, we can get better at self-awareness over time.
This presentation will inspire leaders to embrace the role of self-awareness and self-improvement as a continual process.
