Effective Self-Leadership in 4Dimensions

Marketing Institute of Singapore - Executive Development

Course introduction

Before you can lead other people, you have to learn how to lead yourself first. Before you can motivate, inspire and influence other people, you have to successfully do these things to yourself first. Before you ask for accountability and responsibility in the working environment you have to develop autonomy, that is ownership of choice. What is an effective definition of Self-Leadership? It is the ability of intentionally directing and managing your thinking, feeling and behaviors to achieve your objective and goals in life and work. The practice of Self-Leadership has an effect in the workplace and in life. In fact over time it reduces stress, procrastination, anxiety, worrying, depression, as well as chronic overwhelm and dissatisfaction. It is the foundation for work-life balance. Self-Leadership is a cultivated art that can lead, whoever embark in the process, to become an effective leader of his working organization, team as well as family, and community.
