Sohail

“That which we do not bring to consciousness appears in our lives as fate.” (Carl Jung)
As Change Leaders we are often asked to help organizations, and the individuals in these organizations, to move through the challenges of a change. It is important that we understand the emotions that people are faced with when going through a change, and how we can provide support. Before you can help others with their change journey, are you aware of your own strengths and weaknesses and how they impact you as a leader? Many of us are aware of our strengths, but few of us have taken the time to look at our weaknesses. Without a balanced view of ourselves, it is hard to be authentic and to build trusted relationships, both of which I believe are key in helping lead effective change. Join Sohail as he discusses this topic and offers some practical advice you can use on your own journey, including:

  • What is self-awareness?
  • How understanding your strengths and weaknesses will make you a better leader
  • Why Change Leaders should develop their self-awareness
