As part of a Mentor Program, I had an assignment to take the Clifton Strengths Finder Assessment. My top five strengths are listed below and are aligned with my values:
- Lifelong Learner
- Self Awareness
I find this article interesting on leadership from the Harvard Business Review, Self-Awareness Can Help Leaders More Than an MBA Can, is worth reading. What we believe to be good Leadership traits have changed recently due to inclusion, diversity, and transparency becoming expectations in the workplace and organizations. Leading with authenticity, empathy and integrity requires one to be self aware in their environment. Knowing what your values are and how they impact your relationships with others will affect your success as a leader.
