Lead Yourself

When leaders excel at personal leadership, they improve business results and transform their organization’s culture.

Help Your Leaders Effectively Lead Themselves

Every successful team leader starts by leading themselves effectively. Personal leadership is an individual’s ability to understand their own strengths and motivations and apply their energy to the most important goals. Capable leaders know how to get the best work out of themselves, setting a positive example for their teams and their peers.

Personal leadership begins with self-awareness. Building on this understanding, leaders then define achievable, meaningful goals, seek accountability for progress toward those goals, and handle challenges and conflict with resiliency. They also set appropriate boundaries on their time and energy so they can continuously support their teams without risking burnout.

Every leader in your organization has unique leadership strengths and areas for improvement. FranklinCovey’s research-backed content, expert consultants, and innovative technology will equip your leaders with the resources and insights they need to build and execute strong personal leadership strategies.
