The Self-Aware Leader: How Understanding Yourself Helps You Better Understand Others (2021)

Session #2 of Transformational Leadership: Leading From the Inside Out 2021 Program 
April 14, 2021

Transformational leadership starts with self-awareness.

Self-awareness is one of the hallmarks of a great leader. It demonstrates a capacity to honestly evaluate your own actions, beliefs and impact on others. But self-awareness eludes most people, and our understanding of ourselves and our worlds are limited. It is rare that we take the time to step back from our thoughts and reflect on the reality of the situations we are in, or how we are creating that reality.

In this workshop you will learn more about yourself and how you show up in the world. This will give you new insights on leadership tools that may work for you. It will give you new growth opportunities to accelerate your learning and skyrocket you to success, however YOU define it.

During this workshop, there will be individual, small and large group reflective exercises that will help anchor your learning and start to build a sense of community within the cohort.

Learning Outcomes: 

  • Gain an in-depth understanding of self-awareness as the necessary starting point for working with others and developing personal leadership.

  • Reflect on the degree of alignment of our behaviour and decisions with our personal leadership style and future goals.

  • Build awareness of the way each person observes the world (empowering or limiting beliefs) and the impact of this on their decisions and actions.

  • Practice and experience vulnerability as the root in creating connection.
