Being self-aware is one of the most important skills to have as a leader. It will help you identify your weaknesses and work on them.
How do you know if you’re self-aware? There are a couple of signs.
👆 The first sign that you are NOT self-aware is if you are constantly defensive. You're always having to defend yourself and defend your position to anyone who critiques you.
Also, if you have a reputation of being overpowering or a bully, it might be a good indicator that self-awareness is an important skill you need to practice.
👆 Another sign you’re not self-aware is if you're constantly having to make excuses for why things aren't getting done, for why the quality of work isn't always there, or why things are done late.
The most important thing is to be honest with yourself. That way, you can practice self-awareness, work on your weaknesses, and become a better leader.
