My inspiring life lessons: To lead better we have to change ourselves and this change is about becoming more of who we are – not less! It starts with self-awareness and this is the key difference between leadership and management courses. Management can be improved through cognitive lessons, tools and techniques, whereas leadership courses have to look at more profound self-awareness which inevitably takes us out of our comfort zone. Once there, it becomes apparent that a necessary condition for leadership is selflessness and clear why for leadership motivation is more important than ability
