3 Key Points in this Episode:

- Educate yourself about your personality profile.
- Don’t quickly abandon what you are doing but pay attention to life clues and follow them.
Episode 115: If you were to examine the foundation of strong leadership where would you start? Maybe you would start by looking at organizational strategy, change management, systemization, or even the dream and vision for the business.
That would be a good start.
But what is less obvious is that if we really want to start at the foundation, we need to know whether we are self-aware because if we are not, we are going to miss critical things that will undermine our leadership efforts.
That is why I brought Dr. Ken Keis on the podcast to talk about self-awareness.
