To travel a successful journey, you’ve got to dig in to your baggage.
Somewhere along the line, you hear a message about yourself and you believe it. The message might say you’re smart, dumb, attractive, ugly, helpful, annoying… anything.
How long you believe that message determines just about every aspect of your personal and professional life. That’s what Leadership Coach Laura Dewey believes, anyway.
She’s not the only one. A recent Harvard Business Review article states that the one quality evident in virtually every great entrepreneur, manager, and leader, is self-awareness. It goes on to say that the best way to improve your effectiveness – whether as a mom, a wife, a waitress, a community organizer, or a CEO – is to become more aware of what’s motivating you and your decisions.
