Conduct a review of your own self.
Most would say the cliché that they are their own worst critic, but consider putting a formal structure to this process. All individuals fall into one of two categories. The first has an incessant looming cloud of pressure creeping in from all angles, resulting in a never-ending feeling of not living up to your possible potential. The other lives in a naive bliss, refusing to make eye contact with the person they see staring back in the mirror. Regardless of which camp you are in, the best leaders have a supreme level of self-awareness and emotional intelligence. Introspective reflection is essential for leaders as it gives the brain time to take a break from the noise, unravel cause and effect, and create meaning. This meaning creates a catalyst for actions rooted in purpose and significance.
