Leadership: Be aware of your strengths

October 10, 2017

When setting a good winning team, you surround yourself with people who can do what you cannot. Then you challenge your self-esteem. Low self-esteem will weaken you as a leader, and therefore you should be aware of your strengths.

  • Be well-balanced.
  • Be the best version of yourself.
