Self-leadership

"Empowerment is something someone gives you; self-leadership is what you do to make it work" (Blanchard, K (2006) Self Leadership and the One Minute Manager, London, Harper Collins)

Self-leadership is about recognising your own leadership skills and abilities, and taking responsibility for using and developing these. Self leadership involves:

  • Seeking feedback from others and motivating yourself to improve your own leadership
  • Being resilient and finding ways through challenging situations
  • Taking positive risks, supported by your organisation
  • Challenging discriminatory or oppressive practice.
