Confident, effective leaders manage themselves first. To lead others well we must start with self-reflection. Through growing our self-awareness around our thinking, behaviours and impact as leaders we can then make intentional choices around our self-management – what do we do with our nerves, how do we cope with the overwhelm, how do we actively learn from our great and our rubbish moments as leaders?
When we effectively practise self-management, we can tackle the challenges of leadership from a place of calm confidence and clear communication, holding the focus on both connection and outcomes. To be a leader who walks your talk – start by managing yourself.
