Great leaders are often seen as outward-facing — communicating and influencing others as they drive an organization to success.
While communication and influence are two of the “fundamental 4” core leadership skills identified in our research, the other two — learning agility and self-awareness — are more inward-focused.
Self-awareness as a leader can be the most challenging of the 4 to develop, but it can also serve as a foundation for strengthening all your other leadership skills.
Leader effectiveness is constrained or amplified based on how well leaders understand themselves, their awareness of how others view them, and how they navigate the resulting interactions.

Leaders’ social identities influence how they lead and interact with others, making them critical for them to understand.
Understanding their leadership reputation helps leaders comprehend how they may be perceived and judged by others, which makes them better influencers and communicators.
And by understanding their leadership brand, leaders can bring their strengths to the surface and communicate what they’re capable of.
