What Great Leaders Understand About Themselves

I recently had the privilege of being interviewed by Patricia Hirsch on her ‘Design Your Life’ radio show.

My topic was about the importance of leaders understanding what really makes them tick. In other words, what is that they really value? How do they ‘live’ those values each day? What happens when their personal values are not being honoured?

 

What happens is this…

 

  • There is internal conflict for that person.
  • When there is internal conflict, there is fuzzy thinking.
  • With fuzzy thinking there is lack of motivation which figures seeing as they don’t really know what they are trying to achieve.
  • This lack of motivation and clarity is often accompanied by a disconnect with their team, their peers and their superiors.
  • This in turn has a negative impact on their ability to lead powerfully.

Understanding what you value, what you believe and being self aware enough to recognise the impact you are having is vital for effective leadership – be that in workplace situations or in your own life.
