Self-Leadership: Winning Strategies for Fulfilling Work and Life (Part 1): Theoretical Foundations and Core Competencies of Self-Leadership

Self-leadership entails cultivating and regulating your energy to initiate, motivate, and perform at a high level, refining and maintaining your leadership philosophy, and adopting a happier, healthier, more active lifestyle, higher job satisfaction, and improved career development.

It enables you to efficiently adapt to change and introduce more healthy habits into your life so you can perform better under pressure, manage your workload, deal with demanding customers (or colleagues), and understand what you need to put in place (professionally and personally), so you could savor your daily endeavors more intensely and at the same time prevent spiraling out of control into burnout.

Learn how to use self-leadership strategies to survive and thrive in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world.

“Mastering others is strength. Getting yourself is true power.”  – Lao Tze
