Intelligent self-leaders are the key factor in determining the success of any organisation. All leadership starts with leading one-self. Self-leadership should be perceived as the core of all leadership.
Intelligent Self-Leadership focuses on this core of leadership: How could we all learn to direct and lead ourselves better? We all have our own organisation, Self Ltd, in which we are the managers. We need to invest in our total wellness, which means looking after our efficiency, renewal, and well-being. Total wellness comprises physical, mental, social, spiritual and professional condition. Managing all these areas in a balanced way is intelligent self-leadership. It is holistic self-development and fulfilment.
