A Matter of Self-Esteem

So where would you put yourself on the self-esteem curve? Psychology Today says that: “Possessing little self-regard can lead people to become depressed, to fall short of their potential or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships.

“Too much self-love, on the other hand,” the magazine continues, “results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failures. Perhaps no other self-help topic has spawned so much advice and so many (often conflicting) theories.” It’s a subject that certainly has kept Dr. Phil in riches for the greater part of two decades.

But how can you reconcile low self-esteem and your ability to manage, to lead? A leader with high self-esteem does not feel threatened by others and their ideas. On the other hand, a person with low-self-esteem will feel threatened by ideas and those who are innovative and think outside the box. So we ask again, where do you fall along the self-esteem curve?

To seek answers to the question, watch the recording of the free IREM webinar Leadership Development: Self Awareness and Self Esteem.

The webinar, conducted by Alfred Ojejinmi, CPM, discusses the importance of self-esteem and self-awareness in leadership and the steps you can take towards achieving them.
