"Empowerment is something someone gives you; self-leadership is what you do to make it work" (K Blanchard, Leadership and the One Minute Manager)
As a corporate or strategic leader you have a clear leadership role in relation to your organisation and, where appropriate, the community. Your leadership will have an impact on the vision and ethos of the organisation, on its managers and staff and on the quality of the experience of people who use the service.
Being aware of your own leadership style, strengths and areas for development is a good starting point in developing self-leadership.
"Leadership is not the private reserve of a few charismatic men and women. It is a process ordinary people use when they are bringing forth the best from themselves and others."
