The Self-Aware Leader
by Daniel P. Gallagher and Joseph Costal
In The Self-Aware Leader, Daniel P. Gallagher and Joseph Costal offer four pillars of leadership to help aspiring leaders understand their own strengths and weaknesses and become capable of working towards improvement.
Becoming a great leader depends on self-awareness and the capacity for reinvention. These are also the keys to personal success. Without a clear vision that goes beyond material achievements, a career can never be a true success.
Strong leaders think about the organisation as a whole, not just their own departments; develop new, imaginative ideas, and always share opportunity and credit generously with others. The authors provide tips, anecdotes and exercises to allow struggling managers to reinvent themselves as strong leaders.
