Leaders know the importance of adapting to disruptions and new circumstances. Mark Smith emphasizes the essence of having the awareness of one’s skills, capabilities, and limitations. Knowing these things will help you assess yourself on what you need to improve on. There are ways to improve your self-awareness. Some of the steps include:
- Journaling your thoughts and plans/tracking your progress
- Always be unlearning and learning
- Getting a coach
- Gaining perspective without judgment until you have the big picture
- Taking assessments to gain personal insights

To become a good leader, you make learning a part of your personal culture. Mark offers a leadership skills assessment at OnDemandU.com/lead.
