Leadership Traits: Self Awareness

One trait that you probably identify in the best leaders is self awareness.  Self awareness is about knowing what you do best, what makes you tick, what impact you have on others and where you still need to grow and develop.

The benefit of being self aware is that you can aim to play to your strengths and as a result achieve greater success.

So how self aware are you and what could you do to develop your awareness even more?

I take time to evaluate my day and ask my self questions like, What was behind that response? What can you learn from this? What could you have done differently?

It only takes a few minutes and helps me to grow.
