Live in the silence where the knowing dwells.- Lolly Daskal
What does knowing yourself have to do with leadership?
How important is self-awareness?
Self-awareness is where effective leadership begins.
Take a moment and step inward. Filter out all the distractions. Stay present with past barriers that may cause hindrance.
Spending quiet time in reflection helps you identify what you stand for, what values govern your life, and what is important to you.
Treat yourself to these moments of quiet on a daily basis.
This important practice of self reflection helps develop personal mastery and shape self awareness.
Leaders who lead from within combine their personality and principles to explore and engage their roles and their competencies with ongoing processes and practices to make a profound difference.
Leaders who lead from within demonstrate high levels of tolerance towards disputes, disagreements, and dissension. They have a clear personal navigation system within their purpose, values, and vision that always leads the way.
Leaders who lead from within know that the interactions that really matter are the ones that come from the heart. Caring and connecting are the first keys to unleashing potential, possibilities, prospects, and the promise to be impactful.
When we know ourselves we do not need to pretend.
/>We can be real. We can be the best of who we are.
Setting this example will draw out the best in ourselves and those around us.
Lead from Within: Heart based leadership begins with knowing yourself. It’s the most important way you can equip yourself to lead others.
