Who do you need to be to lead your followers to achieve your vision?
That’s exactly what the MySelf step sets out to answer.
Now that you have established where you are and where you want to be by doing the MyPresent modules, you will look at who you are as a leader right now and who you need to become. Have you got what it takes to achieve your vision?
You will understand why you do what you do and think the way you think. You will take a look at your behaviours, your values and your beliefs and understand how these have shaped your leadership approach.
The MySelf courses will help you get clear about your own particular strengths, and how can you best utilise them, but also embrace your weaknesses (remember that every strength that is overplayed can become a weakness).
So, MySelf is really about getting to know you as a leader, and where you are helping or hindering your results so that you can make the changes that transform your team and business.
For me, in terms of personal leadership, this step is the most important. It can also be incredibly uncomfortable looking at ourselves in the mirror. Your ability to get stuff done got you this far, but now as a leader, it’s less about what you do and much more about how you do it.
Without doing work on yourself, it’s difficult to explain your own personal success strategy.
"Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny." - Gandhi
For as long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by why people do the things they do, although looking at myself wasn’t always that easy. Fascinating yes, but not easy. I have had to face my own behaviours, my negative or unhelpful beliefs and take responsibility for some of the decisions I have made that weren’t that great.
It’s easy to blame external circumstances and blame others for life’s misfortunes, but LeaderX takes responsibility for their own lives. Unless you understand yourself, you are not fully in control or in charge of the decisions you make.
