Successful leaders must understand their own personal beliefs, goals, motivations and emotions and how those affect our response to management and leadership issues.  Great leaders listen to others, but must also listen to the inner self.  Our personal perspective will clearly affect the  outcome of a situation and our ability to lead.  Taking time for introspective analysis and personal, not just “professional” development, is important to the success of any professional, but particularly leaders.
