Self leadership at work is...
the practice of knowing who you are as a professional, understanding why you do what you do, using your talents and what you know, identifying your desired experiences and thus knowing what you need to learn, and finally intentionally guiding yourself toward your professional objectives.
It spans the determination of what we do as a professional, why we do it, and how we do it and having the ability to control your emotions and behavior in a way that guides you toward success.
