What we know is that executives who are more self-aware make better leaders.  They understand how they think in the workplace and how their own brains work in different situations. They know their unconscious biases and blind spots. They focus on preparing leaders that understand themselves first and the importance of leading from the inside out. They then guide organizations forward by creating environments of inclusion, continuous learning, collaboration and diverse thinking as they build cultures that foster and appreciate differences as well as unique perspectives. This is true whether creating a strategic direction, driving change, maximizing innovation or streamlining organizational processes as they build elegant stakeholder experiences with clear values and purpose-driven authenticity.
