Whitepaper: Leadership excellence through self-awareness
Even with a long résumé of successes and qualiﬁcations—success climbing organizational ladders, enviable technical expertise, a track record of visionary innovation—every leader has something they can't seem to master. Perhaps it's an inability to ﬁnally push signature initiatives over the ﬁnish line. Perhaps your organization’s teams cannot consistently pull together and collaborate at top eﬃciency. Maybe it's a tendency to lose your cool in, or avoid altogether, stressful interactions with employees.
No matter what you have accomplished as a leader, these lingering pain points can limit your organization’s accomplishments. What could be the cause? Most people have subtle, unexamined motivations or beliefs that can sabotage successful relationships and derail success as a leader. In other words, you're probably up against barriers in yourself you don't even know are there.
Unlocking those stubborn areas where you fall just short requires a deep, honest, objective examination and acceptance of your core self. That examination can reveal otherwise hidden root causes of your thoughts and behaviors—and the root causes of the results you are getting from the organization you lead. Improved self-awareness could be the key to reaching the pinnacle of success as a leader.
