These self-improvement articles will help you develop two of the key elements all high-performance leaders excel at ... Self-awareness and Personal Growth.
I often say to the leaders I coach .... "If you aren't growing yourself how can you expect to grow your people?"
Relying on your previous capabilities isn't enough. Reinvent yourself regularly so that you stay relevant and at the peak of your performance.
If you continue to rely on the skills you gained in the past - the skills that got you to your current role - to carry you forward in the future, you may well pay a price. The price being a lack of trust in your ability to succeed in your current role, let alone other opportunities further along the career path.
Show your willingness to learn and adapt. Show those who make promotional decisions in your organization that you are focused on self-improvement and have the motivation to inspire others to do the same. Show them that you are growing a strong bench for the future ... not only that you are continuously improving AND that you are bringing your people along with you. That will set you apart!

Companies need leaders who are up-to-date with leading-edge thinking and developments. Leaders who can look to the future and help the organization prosper. You'll stand out from the crowd if you get a reputation as someone who is focused on continuous improvement ... of both the company's products and services and most importantly of the people and yourself.
Every day learn something new and then share it with your team. This is how continuous improvement goes viral throughout your workplace - which ultimately leads to higher performance.
In most of the teams I have led, we make it an agenda item in our team meetings that each week someone is responsible for sharing something new they have discovered. It could be a personal growth book they've read, a business article, a new technological concept.
Which brings me to this next important point. Make sure you are developing your skills beyond just your technical capability. A well-rounded leader enhances their capability in social, business and personal growth/personal empowerment skills as well.
So, take control of your life by investing in yourself and your personal development.
