About the course

An increasing number of studies in leadership effectiveness show that accurate self-awareness is essential to great leadership. Self-awareness is considered one of the most essential interpersonal skills to effective leadership. In fact, self-awareness has predicted:

  • Individual and interpersonal effectiveness
  • Managerial success and effectiveness
  • Leader behavior and performance

Leaders who demonstrate a keen understanding of their own emotions and can anticipate how others experience their leadership are better positioned to respond effectively to the demands of their environment.
