Lack of Self-Awareness
As leaders, we’re very aware of everything outside of us—our companies, teams, finances, and so on. Being self-aware, though, is more difficult. It requires us to ask uncomfortable questions sometimes: “Why am I here? What’s my purpose? What would happen if I was gone?” It’s easy to get so busy that we lose this sense of self. Self-awareness, however, is the key to staying motivated, staying out of the ditches, and staying in a place of growth as a leader.
