FOUR APPROACHES FOR BECOMING A MORE SELF-AWARE LEADER
A key distinction between effective and ineffective leaders is their ability to increase their self-awareness when it counts. But, this is no easy task.
The demands on today’s executives are greater than ever before. While massive amounts of data are available to analyze, changes in market forces are more unpredictable and complex, and decisions need to be made and implemented on accelerated timelines. The challenge is that when the pressure to perform intensifies, managers tend to draw on their past experiences and underlying assumptions that often cloud their ability to see and respond to changing dynamics in an unbiased manner.
Objectivity is the ability to recognize and accept things as they are without projecting our mental models, past experiences or fears. Objective leaders respond to ongoing business and personal challenges more thoughtfully, deliberately and effectively.
To do this we must:
Understand our inherent subjectivity
Learn how to increase objectivity in the moment
Understand the five most common mental models
Learn how to identify and assess the mental models that may be impeding your progress
Transform limiting and unproductive mental models
This recorded presentation covers four innovative approaches for becoming a more self-aware leader.
