Zoe Routh and Aoife O’Brien speak about leadership and self-awareness, the importance of understanding yourself in order to become a better leader. Sometimes power can impact on our humility, and we lack empathy, compassion and service to others – the reason we became leaders in the first place! It’s important to be aware of our triggers, observe ourselves without judgement. Two critical areas of self-awareness are covered: feedback; and self-reflection. We touch on the importance of giving feedback, how to give feedback effectively, and there are several self-reflection prompts you may want to jot down!
