Personal Leadership

“Before you lead others, first lead yourself”

Personal Leadership

Know Thyself” Socrates

There is power in knowing who you are, what you can do and where you are going. If you can also influence your behaviour, emotions and communication in the direction of your goals you become unstoppable.  This is the skill of leading yourself, otherwise known as emotional intelligence or EQ.

Emotional Intelligence is fast becoming the single greatest predictor of success in every occupation and industry worldwide. This is particularly true in leadership because it’s the leader who creates the climate in an organisation – deliberately or accidently – through their attitude, conduct, communication and reactions. However, most leaders are unaware of the extent to which their behaviour impacts the success of their organisation.

Your transformation begins when you take an honest look at how you show up, how you affect a room and the organisational climate you are creating.

EQ is comprised of 2 factors:

Intra-personal competence - the ability to know, accept, and manage oneself

Inter-personal competence - the ability to work effectively with others (link to other page?)

“Self mastery is the challenge of transforming yourself from your own worst
enemy into your greatest ally”.

Wes Fesler


To become an emotionally intelligent leader, self awareness is essential.

You must see your influence  as the critical factor for achieving results, rather than elements outside of you (business systems, structure and circumstances). In every interaction, high EQ leadership allows you lead to intentionally, tailoring your actions, responses and communication to shape a desired outcome. Emotional Intelligence includes the ability to regulate your emotional reactions so you can choose responses congruent with who you want to be rather than defaulting to knee jerk reactions that damage relationships. It allows you to be fully aware of your preferred leadership style, and know how to manage your strengths and weaknesses with grace.  

At EQ2Lead, we understand that this level of self management is hard work. That’s why we’ve designed a leadership program to make your transformation easier. We’ve brought together expertise from many disciplines, from Royal Marine Commando training to the latest thinking in human needs psychology and personality profiling.

To fast track self awareness, we use The Enneagram system - the most powerful and profound method available to develop emotional intelligence and to enhance leadership capability with respect to today’s most important leadership competencies.
