What is Introspective Leadership

Transformational Leadership Styles, Management Strategies, and Communication for Global Leaders
Refers to a leadership approach that involves looking inward and examining one’s own thoughts, emotions, judgments, and perceptions to enhance self-awareness and personal growth as a leader. By engaging in introspection, leaders gain a deeper understanding of themselves, their values, strengths, weaknesses, and motivations, which can then inform their decision-making, interactions with others, and overall leadership style.

Leadership in Action: An Introspective Reflection

This chapter highlights reflective practice as the core element of the ongoing art of introspective leadership. Firstly, while there is no one without the other, what does exist here is a dependent and independent variable. The independent variable, reflective practice, undeniably begins with self. Any person committed to a life of professional development must realize that one's personal development comes first. The introspection and assiduous work required is prodigious, to say the least. A practitioner understands that this work is cyclical in nature. As underlined in this chapter, it is essential to recognize the role of introspection in leadership. This work is a recurrent process; all actions, reactions, and interactions are interconnected, and it is imperative that leaders spend sufficient time analyzing, personalizing, and reinforcing these constructs.
