Most leaders don’t know who they are. As leadership consultants Jeremie Kubicek and Steve Cockram explain, lack of self-awareness is a predominant leadership flaw. They offer valuable guidance on how leaders can develop the self-knowledge they need to act with competence and confidence. They advise building your understanding of yourself and sharpening your perception of how others see you so you can become a “100X leader” who leads like a Himalayan Sherpa – always putting others first, even when navigating treacherous Mount Everest.

Comment on this summary
2 years agoThought-provoking use of the example of a mountain Sherpa as a selfless leader. Though seldom recognized, without their expertise and willingness to extend themselves personally in order for the people they lead to be successful, the people they lead would fail, and on Everest quite possibly die.
Easy, though beneficial read with practical questions I can ask myself about my own self-leadership. Is my own advice to myself sound and consistently executed? If not, why would others be compelled to follow me?
