Leadership Minute: Self-Leadership

leadership

Aristotle said, “I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.” It’s easy to spot the faults of others or be critical. The greater challenge is dealing with the person in the mirror. We should all be as forgiving and full of grace for others as we tend to give ourselves. It’s when we learn how to lead ourselves that we can best learn how to lead others. Self-leadership is the beginning of authentic leadership.
