Self-Assessment - Yours
First a warning: people tend to over-rate themselves. Often the gap between self-realization and reality is enormous. Our inability (or unwillingness) to see our blind-spots is a severely limiting factor. We tend to look at our strengths while seeing everyone else's weaknesses. Reversing this tendency is a foundational requirement of leadership growth.
Honest self-evaluation allows us to home in on areas that need specific attention, identify major areas for improvement and call attention to existing strengths, which we can further strengthen.
