Leader, Know Thyself

Posted on Posted in Leading

As great leaders, we understand ourselves. We know our strengths, blind spots, and biases. And we consistently grow ourselves. We do all this for three reasons.

First, self knowledge and growth are¬†valuable in their own right. Life becomes more and more rich, beautiful, and fulfilling as we learn about and become more of ourselves. Second, by knowing and growing ourselves, we keep pace with our organization. Otherwise, we’d run the risk that its needs would outgrow our abilities. Third, our self understanding helps us understand, appreciate, and grow new leaders.

Know thyself.

 

In your corner,

Mike
