Every good leader we have met has a very centered presence— they know themselves. They know their strengths and weaknesses. For sure, at their core they know their purpose and why they lead. They have a deep understanding of what they are all about and how that can
be used to impact an organization. We call that knowing Leader-Self. So the first secret to developing good leaders is to help your candidates find out who they are, their purpose, and how that can impact your company, function, or department.
