Self-Awareness The ability to recognize your moods, emotions, and drives, and how they affect you, others, your relationships and your performance. People with self-awareness are better able to deal with challenging situations because understand and deal with the effect of moods and emotions. E.g. a leader who recognizes that tight deadlines bring out the worst in her plans her time carefully and gets the work done well in advance.

Self-Awareness (continued) The ability to assess accurately and talk openly about your strengths and weaknesses. Self-aware people seek honest feedback and react constructively, rather than defensively, to criticism. Self-aware leaders have a firm grasp on their capabilities and limitations, which prevents them from setting themselves up for failure. They are not afraid to admit failure or to ask for help. Their candor shows in the form of self- confidence and a self-deprecating sense of humor.

Self-Awareness (continued) The ability to understand and act according to your values, needs, and goals. Self-aware people find work to be energizing because they always act in sync with their values and needs. E.g. Self-aware people find it easier to turn down a job offer that is tempting financially but that could cause great frustration later because it does not fit with their principles or long term goals.

Self-Control The ability to control bad moods and redirect disruptive impulses. Leaders with self-control are able to regulate their anger and frustration when something bad happens. Instead, they acknowledge the problem without hasty judgment, considering reasons, mitigating factors, consequences and feelings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
