In order to be truly effective as a leader, you must know yourself. It sounds elementary, but we have found that most leaders haven’t spent enough time knowing who they are and how they can be effective. Here are some questions to consider:
- Do I know my VALUES?
- Do I know my STRENGTHS?
- Do I know my WORKING STYLE?
In this episode, Mark and Molly describe how to truly know yourself as a leader and why it is important. They suggest three key steps to help you know your values, strengths, and style:
- ASSESS – Assess your values, strengths, and style yourself.
- DISCUSS – Discuss your values, strengths, and style with a few close associates.
- REFLECT – Reflect on your values, strengths, and style as you go through life’s daily lessons.
