Self-Leadership means having: A developed sense of who you are, where you’re going, and what you want, as well as... The ability to formulate a strategy and influence and inspire yourself and others to follow it through.
Self-Leadership is probably the most important skill you can ever develop as a person and as a professional. And as you see, it’s quite complicated. WATCH VIDEO.
The importance of self-leadership, has been taught since the beginning of history, when the ancient Greek sages recited The Odyssey, the story of King Odysseus setting out on a journey to return to his homeland after the end of the Trojan war.
He famously faces countless dangers and hardship - monsters like the Cyclops, the Scylla and Charybdis, enchantresses like Queen Circe and the Sirens, but he never loses hope or focus, no matter how big the obstacles, because he knows what he wants. He wants to return home to his wife and family.
To his kingdom. It doesn’t matter that the gods, the winds and the sea are all against him. He conquers his demons, adapting to changes, keeping his course, fighting through storms and monsters, to the very end, because his goal is clear, virtuous and heartfelt, and it gives him the strength and purpose he needs.
“The first and greatest victory is to conquer yourself; to be conquered by yourself is of all things most shameful and vile.” - Plato
