EIM Inside Leadership Podcast: Why Leaders Need Self Awareness

Sure, there are extremely effective leaders who don’t possess self-awareness, but they’re usually in the form of something destructive, like a dictator. So what is self-awareness?

Self-awareness is a specific analytic skill that allows us to know what we know about ourselves, reveal what others may not know about us, and discover and learn about what we can’t see in ourselves.
