The Importance of Self Leadership

from LinkedIn

Often during leadership coaching sessions people focus on leading OTHERS. What would it mean to pause and consider how you LEAD YOURSELF? Self-leadership is the most critical prerequisite to broader leadership impact. 

If you aren’t successfully leading yourself in the things you say are important to you, how do you expect to lead others in the important things?

Here are 3 keys and affirmations to encourage a Self-Leadership mindset: 

  1. AWARENESS. I am committed to constantly revisiting my values so I’m clear on what’s important to me at any given moment. 
  2. EMBODIMENT. I always have a choice to operate in a way that is aligned with my values. 
  3. BRAVERY. I show up for myself daily and know that as I lead myself from a place of truth, I am most able to lead others.
