Self-leadership is the Solution for Personal Power and Leadership, especially in the AI and Digital World that we live in.

Self-leadership is the Practice of intentionally influencing your thinking, feeling, and actions toward your objectives (Bryant & Kazan 2012).

Self-leadership is essential to achieving your professional objectives and leading people because effective leaders must lead by example. 

Maintaining motivation and accepting responsibility for your own activities is one of the biggest personal advantages of self-leadership.

Self-leadership in the workplace has advantages for both the individual and the company. Self-leadership enables a leader to influence people to act in a way that furthers their and the company's objectives.

 
  • Organizations¬†that adopt and promote a self-leadership culture have greater employee¬†engagement,¬†collaboration, and¬†readiness for change.¬†Self-leadership is the key competency and mindset for the future of work.
  • Individuals¬†who develop self-leadership increase their efficiency, productivity,¬†personal power,¬†and¬†executive presence.

Founder of Self Leadership International, Speaker, and Leadership Coach, Andrew Bryant is the author of three books on self-leadership.  He is recognized as a Global Authority on Self-leadership and is referenced in over 140 papers and Ph.D. dissertations.

SELF-LEADERSHIP is foundational for Personal Effectiveness and Leadership Development

  • Personal Effectiveness requires taking ownership and responsibility. The self-leader does not blame, complain, or play the victim. Self-leadership is modern-day stoicism. It is about accepting reality, adjusting behavior accordingly, and advancing towards objectives.
  • Leadership¬†is the process¬†of influencing others in a way that enhances their contribution to the realization of group goals. The Effective Leader builds a culture of Self-leadership so that individuals and teams are empowered to fully contribute to those group goals.
  • Andrew Bryant believes there is NO LEADERSHIP without followership and that leadership is a conversation - a one-to-one, and a one-to-many conversation.

MńÉdńÉlina Nechifor - Maxcode

Andrew Bryant's speech on self-leadership was not only engaging but also transformative. Andrew has a unique perspective on leadership, challenging conventional wisdom and shedding light on the importance of trust and followership.

Self-leadership is Confidence Humility,
NOT Ignorant Certainty

Leadership is not easy, it requires balancing people, processes, and profits, in a volatile business and Global environment.

Perceived pressure to be perfect, a tendency to narcissism, or hierarchical leadership structures can create leaders who operate with Ignorant Certainty. 

Ignorant Certainty from the leader prevents the formation of collaborative teams and may produce clones, who also rule with similar ignorance.  This is what constitutes an ugly leadership culture

The humble leader is grounded, they know that they don't know everything, practice self-leadership, and are confident that together with the right people they can solve problems and make the best of opportunities. This is what good leadership looks like.

‚ÄĚOur world is evolving at an increasingly fast pace. Organizations are facing higher levels of disruption, uncertainty, and volatility in their environments. Teams and individuals alike are having to¬†develop greater agility, resilience, and collaboration¬†to succeed. This ‚Äėnext normal‚Äô requires a revised playbook for leaders to grow, perform and thrive."¬†

Mariam Tariq - SVP of Product & Marketing

I have read over 100 leadership books in my career. All had some nuggets of wisdom. But what Andrew Bryant has managed to do with The New Leadership Playbook is distill in a readable, get-to-the-point manner, the exact attributes and actions that you need to be a leader.

Honestly, this book has helped me tremendously. There are 12 leadership plays. If you are not doing ALL 12, you are NOT a great leader. You can be a functional leader, a capable leader, a nice leader, but not a great one. 

Stephen Hodson - Marketing and Program Director

Andrew is an excellent coach and I appreciate his contribution to my development and transition from a regional General Manager to a Director with global responsibility.

I greatly value his guidance and mentoring, our work together was a key step in my career development. I was also fortunate to have Andrew present at several of our large-team meetings and his ability to inspire change was an important step in forming high-performing teams.
