The Greek philosopher Aristotle famously advised, "First, know thyself.&auot;" That adage serves anyone well. But it is particularly relevant to leadership. Leaders should know themselves, first and foremost.
The most important mentor in my life understood that well. He repeatedly told me, "We all have a flat side on our wheel somewhere. The sooner we can identify that flat side and build systems and people around us to compensate for it, the sooner we will be successful and the greater our success will be."
This episode guides you through a process of identifying the flat side on your wheel. And it explains why knowing yourself is essential to effective team-building — and in truth, to leadership in any arena.
