Self Management Skills
Build a Team of Confident Leaders
Leadership skills are essential for every person in your organization — not just managers and executives, but individual contributors, too. Self-leadership is the foundation for personal and professional growth. Simply put, it’s an individual’s ability to understand their own strengths and motivations and apply their energy to the goals that matter most. Effective individuals know how to get the best out of themselves so they and your business reap the benefits.
Self-leadership starts with self-awareness. Building on this understanding, each person can then set achievable, meaningful goals, hold themself accountable for progress toward those goals, and handle challenges and conflict with resiliency. They can also set appropriate boundaries on their time and energy to ensure they deliver results without risking burnout.
Within your organization, individual team members have unique strengths and areas for improvement. FranklinCovey’s research-backed content, expert consultants, and innovative technology will equip each person with the resources and insights they need to build a strong leadership foundation and make a unique contribution.
