Want to Be a Good Leader? Step One Know
Thyself   What is the most important
characteristic of a leader? Some might say it's
integrity. Others may say that it's being a good
motivator. But psychologist and author Sherrie
Campbell believes that self-awareness the
ability to monitor one's own emotions and
reactions is the key factor in leadership
success.   "Self-awareness keeps us grounded,
attuned and focused," said Campbell, author of
"Loving Yourself The Master of Being Your Own
Person" (AuthorHouse, 2012). "When leaders are
grounded, they are able to be efficient and
deliberate in staying on task, and being attuned
to those around them. Leaders who have the
ability to control their minds and emotions help
to guide those around them to develop their own
self-knowledge and success."

  • Learning to be aware of yourself isn't always
    easy, but mastering this skill can help you
    become a much more effective leader. Campbell
    shared these seven tips for improving
    self-awareness. 4 Tips For Teaching Leadership
    Skills
  • Keep an open mind. When you have the ability to
    regulate your own emotional world, you can be
    attuned the emotions of others. To be a
    successful leader, you have to be curious about
    new people and all they have to offer. This shows
    that you can be a team player, and don't need to
    be No. 1. The more open you are to others, the
    more creative you become.
  • Be mindful of your strengths and weaknesses.
    Self-aware individuals know their own strengths
    and weaknesses and are able to work from that
    space. Being mindful of this means that you know
    when to reach out for assistance, and when you
    are good on your own.

  • Stay focused. Making connections with those
    around you is important as a leader. But you
    can't make those connections if you're
    distracted. Train yourself to focus for long
    periods of time without getting sucked into
    social media, emails and other small
    distractions.
  • Set boundaries. A leader needs to have strong
    boundaries in place. Be warm toward others, but
    say no when you need to say no. Be serious about
    your work and your passions, and keep your
    boundaries firm to maintain the integrity of your
    goals and the work you put into them.
  • Know your emotional triggers. Self-aware
    individuals are able to identify their emotions
    as they are happening. Don't repress your
    emotions or deny their causes instead, be able
    to bend and flex with them, and fully process
    them before communicating with others.

  • Embrace your intuition. Successful people trust
    their gut instincts and take the risks associated
    with them. Your instincts are based on the
    survival of the fittest and the need to succeed.
    They tell us what to do next. Learn to trust
    these and use them.
  • Practice self-discipline. Good leaders tend to be
    disciplined at work and in every area of their
    life. It is a character trait that provides them
    with the enduring focus necessary for strong
    leadership.
