AgilEmpath Episode 7- Leadership Skills Pt 1-Self Awareness
Leadership strengths are qualities that help leaders to manage and motivate their team. This includes what motivates us and our decision making. One of the top skills to develop as a leader is how aware we are of ourselves, according to multiple sources including the Harvard Business Review. Effective teams are made up of people who both understand and complement each other.
Self-awareness seems to have become the latest management buzzword — and for good reason. Research suggests that when we see ourselves clearly, we are more confident and more creative. We make sounder decisions, build stronger relationships, and communicate more effectively. We’re less likely to lie, cheat, and steal. We are better workers who get more promotions. And we’re more-effective leaders with more-satisfied employees and more-profitable companies.
