“Knowing yourself is true wisdom, mastering yourself is true power” ~LAO TSU~
Did you know 90% of top performing leaders score high on emotional intelligence tests? Self-awareness – the first component of emotional intelligence – means having a deep understanding of your emotions, strengths, weaknesses, and drives; and a healthy, realistic, honest view of yourself and others. If your goal is to become a more effective leader, committing to self-awareness is well worth the effort. Fair warning, this is not for the faint of heart – building emotional intelligence skills can be done, but ONLY with a sincere desire and dedicated effort.
