HOW YOU BENEFIT
Focus on Well-Being
– Self leaders feel more positive about themselves and their jobs and have greater energy and less stress.
– When self leaders proactively seek feedback, ask for input, get direction and support, and affect change, they also satisfy their psychological need for autonomy, relatedness, and competence. Accelerated Development – Self leaders take control of their own development—they ask for the direction and support they need so they are able to move up the learning curve to mastery more quickly.Higher Performance – Empowered self leaders are more engaged and committed, consistently work hard, and increase their performance level.Personal Accountability – Self leaders don't feel held accountable by others; they hold themselves accountable for achieving their goals.
Unleashed Innovation – Empowered self leaders know how to overcome challenges and constraints that limit their ability to solve problems, address challenges, and develop innovative solutions.
