Understand Your Role in Self-Leadership

Self-leadership is one of the most frequently overlooked, underinvested in, and most significant gaps in developing human capital in organizations. An individual who is deliberate in influencing themselves and others toward a common goal. Self-leadership must be a foundational development strategy for a leadership development program to thrive in an organization.

It is not possible to lead others successfully if you are not first leading yourself in that direction. Discovering how to form effective goals is an example of self-leadership. It also includes the ability to effectively manage time by tracking daily progress on the goals they set and following through on your daily to-or do’s, maintaining an organized schedule for performance feedback.

Ways to Pursue Self-Leadership

Don’t put off taking the initiative. Take the lead. Don’t wait to be told what to do or expect others to solve your problems. Take part. Reflect on how you contributed to a situation and make a commitment to responding with your best self. Recognize how your actions affect your teammates and the shared outcomes of the team. Instead of complaining or blaming, ask yourself what you can do to make things better.

The best leaders set a good example. They understand the importance of self-leadership in achieving success. When you know who you are and accept responsibility for how you present yourself, you will make better decisions and build stronger relationships.
