Successful leaders know that self-awareness is a key to advancement. Leaders understand the benefits of developing their natural abilities. They also recognize the costs of lost time, misguided effort and misspent energy when those abilities are ignored or wasted.
Occasionally leadership skills come naturally, but more often than not, real leaders build on their skills and surround themselves with people who complement and supplement their abilities. Successful leaders know what they don’t know, but they do know where to find the people and the answers they need.
