Self-Leadership and Teams

You may be thinking, “Don't the terms self-leadership and teams contradict or oppose each other?” In other words, what does leading oneself have to do with working as a team?

To reach your individual potential while working within a team, you must still lead yourself. In fact, only by effectively leading yourself as a team member can you help the team to lead itself, reach its potential, and thus achieve synergy.

The application of mental and behavioral self-leadership strategies that enable team members to provide themselves with self-direction and self-motivation, and ultimately to become effective, personally empowered contributors to their team.
