Self-Awareness - Leadership Superfood of the 21st Century

Self-Awareness – The Leadership Superfood of the 21st Century

Presented by: John Russell

Objective feedback can be tough to swallow but it is necessary for the growth and development of leaders.  Feedback supports self-awareness – the accurate understanding of who we are, and how we’re perceived by others.

Research shows that while 95% of leaders believe they are self-aware, only 10-15% actually are. This gap shows that work is needed to improve how leaders view themselves. With self-awareness being an essential capability for today’s leaders, a capability that can be developed, there are many opportunities to turn average leaders into exceptional leaders.

In this webinar, we’ll explore the importance of self-awareness for leaders, what self-awareness really brings to leadership, and tips on gathering and incorporating productive feedback into your leadership development programs.
