Self-Awareness is Critical (Why)

Updated: Oct 3, 2020


Self-awareness is critical to effective leadership.


Powerful leadership is often defined in visible terms โ€“ charismatic, determined, energetic.


Yet the internal nature of self-awareness can decide a successful business.


Dealing with Pressure - Understanding our emotions is critical to responding effectively.


As pressures build (both with success and failure), awareness helps focus our mind and our behaviors.


Working Relationships - Building a business requires meaningful, long-term relationships.


Self-awareness helps us relate productively with others.


Better Decisions โ€“ Facing countless decisions daily, knowing your approach to solutions yields them faster.


Iโ€™ve worked with enough founders to know that we often get in our own way. Awareness can eliminate hidden obstacles.


Uncertainty - Dealing with life and business flowing constantly, self-awareness creates an anchor when needed.


Leadership - Knowing yourself allows you to build on your strengths and to augment your weaknesses.


A logical founder may partner with a charismatic manager. A visionary may want help to build infrastructure.


Being self-aware allows us to perform better.
