What is Leadership of Self?
Leadership of Self is considered the first “level of leadership” and is defined as the ability to coach oneself through challenge, adversity, fear, and temptation. We must first learn to effectively lead ourselves before we can effectively lead others!
Leadership of Self: Key Elements
Self coaching through challenge, adversity, fear, and temptation. There are two types of people out there - those who actively evade challenges and those who work through, around, over, or under challenges - which one typically realizes their dreams?
Setting goals and a path for achievement. Living with vision and purpose requires leaders to set challenging yet realistic goals and develop a plan of action towards achievement.

"Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time." - Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Ruth Bader Ginsburg took office on August 10, 1993 as the second-ever female justice on the Supreme Court of the United States. Regardless of whether you agreed with her decisions during her time serving the SCOTUS, she was a game-changer for gender equality and a proven leader in her field. Even though she faced adversity and gender discrimination while at Columbia Law School, she graduated first in her class and continued on to have a career & life that would leave behind a tremendous legacy.

Because of her passionate fight for the underserved and underrepresented, the Notorious RBG became a beloved icon for many generations. Ruth Bader Ginsburg inspired so many people with her ability to lead in her professional field and as a leader for our country. No matter the challenge, she never backed down or waffled and was never afraid to lead herself or others.
