When it comes to leadership, it is common to think of those we lead and those who lead us. As important as those persons are, I propose an even more important person. That person is you.
How are you managing self-leadership? You are the most important person in the crowd because you are the only person over whom you have total control. Therefore, the question is crucial and vast.
The question is crucial because of the potential effects on your leadership dynamics. The question is vast because self-leadership encompasses many areas, including these:
Health and wellness (mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual).
Goals and objectives.
How you handle success.
How you handle failure.
Life’s mission and vision.
It is wonderful to give leadership to others and it is wonderful to receive leadership from others. Nevertheless, the most important person in leadership is you. Everyone you touch will rise or fall on the basis of how well you exercise self-leadership. Remember, no one can lead you best, nor can you lead anyone best, unless you have mastered self-leadership.
