The Critical Success Factor For Executives, Leaders & Businesses

“Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power.” 

– Lao Tzu

Self-Leadership Mastery 

The Key To Your Professional and Personal Success 

I believe the key to success as an executive, no matter what stage you are at in the executive life cycle, is your own self-leadership.

It’s the cornerstone of a high performance for executives, whether you are starting out as an emerging executive, running your business and wanting more, or you are already a high performing executive who has achieved great success but something is missing. Mastering your own self-leadership is the key to achieving your full potential, and fast tracking your results and success.

Self-leadership is about managing ourselves, our own energy, thinking, decision making, communication, delegation and motivation, to  perform at the highest level. It starts with our morning routine, to the strategies we implement throughout all parts of our day. It’s about inspiring others through your own actions and pursuing excellence, while working towards a common goal, creating a domino ripple effect through your teams, driving accelerated business results.

Your success begins with your thinking, your mindset, your attitudes and beliefs. It begins with understanding what your goals are, the steps you need to take to achieve them and who you need to be on the inside. Your strategies, habits, strengths, benchmarks of excellence – they all directly impact your results.

“Success is an inside job. Put yourself together, and your world falls into place. When you bring purpose to your life, know your priorities, and achieve high productivity on the priority that matters most every day, your life makes sense and the extraordinary becomes possible. All success in life starts within you. You know what to do. You know how to do it. Your next step is simple. You are the first domino.”

The One Thing – Gary Keller

According to Forbes Magazine, “research shows that the two primary reasons leaders fail are because of failed relationships, or because they fail to continually learn.

Ongoing leadership success is mostly determined by one’s ability to develop advanced Self-Leadership skills which enable one to better navigate important, complex, and relational situations.”

Self-Leadership is one of the most often overlooked, underinvested in, and biggest gap in developing human capital in a business. 

And yet it is a super power of success. When life becomes uncertain and demanding, it’s those who lead themselves, from the inside out, that have the greatest success in achieving their results.

They have greater focus, direction and stability. They are more responsive and less reactive during times of pressure. They know themselves.

The reality is that a business is only going to be as good as their people. And the people are only going to be as good as the leaders. They set the culture, the standards, the benchmarks of excellence.

Self-leadership is not something you inherently know – you have to develop the skills  – to lead and manage yourself first.

Mastering the concepts of self-leadership will put you on the path to success, in both your personal and professional lives.

We must truly know and influence ourselves before we can lead and influence others. Why do we make decisions, react certain ways, create habits and routines, set and achieve goals, and create focus and discipline?

Successful leaders not only understand their strengths and challenges, but they also use this knowledge together with reflection, evaluation, and ultimately action to develop personally and professionally. As organisations become increasingly complex, teams diversify, and workplace practices change, leaders need to build resilience within themselves and others.

Begin your self-awareness journey to develop your leadership skills and fulfil your human potential.



Business and life intertwine. How you are in life is reflected in how you are as a leader. Learn to understand:

  • Who you are;
  • What drives you; and
  • What are your natural behaviours, responses and thinking patterns in order to determine if they are getting you the outcomes you want for you and your teams.


Do you have a fixed or growth mindset? Do you believe your thinking is fixed or can it change? What are your life values and beliefs, vision and mission, identity and purpose?

When you understand who you are, what you stand for, what’s important to you and why you do what you do – that gives you the tools to move forward with confidence and certainty about you.


Having structure in our lives is directly linked with us achieving our dreams and goals. But we tend to run around doing the doing. But are we being proactive? Do we have a plan? It starts with knowing your goals, your benchmarks of success and your strategies to create the results you want.

They are the tools to achieving your personal performance potential.


What holds you back from taking action? Do you stay comfortably stuck where you are? Does fear hold you back? The key to action comes from knowing what motivates you, your strengths and challenges, and your habits and rituals. What are you focussing on to achieve your results? How are you building self trust?

At the core of taking action is your ability to be flexible your thinking and behaviour – to see the opportunities, possibilities and options.


Did you know that 93% of our communication is non-verbal? Our language becomes more about how we say the words, how we sit, look, move, what we wear, our eye movements, our tonality – they all tell a story. It’s our physiology, tonality and rapport that mainly impacts our communication with others. And then it’s the actual conversations we have, the people we surround ourselves with, and the mentoring and guidance that supports our communication style and impact.
