How you lead is Who you are (Can’t separate doing from being). It’s not just about what we do in the world when it comes to leadership; it’s also about who we are. Take a minute to consider whether it is possible to divorce one’s identity from the roles we play. I don’t believe so.

You need to have a solid understanding of who you are as a person and how to use that knowledge to your advantage as a leader. You may assess your leadership strengths and weaknesses using this knowledge to become a more effective leader. Then, you can work to improve your weaknesses while enhancing your strengths.
