What is self-leadership? How can it be used to stimulate your own development and development in others? Is self-leadership possible to teach/learn? Is it related to success throughout life? These are some of the questions raised by a relatively new area in Psychology, known as self-leadership, and which will be covered in the current presentation. The talk will address the concept of leadership and self-leadership, what are its basic constituencies, and what is known with regards to how it influences behaviour in the individual. Moreover, the presentation will also look at how it impacts success, being it at work or at personal lives.
