Course 1, Modules 1 & 2

Conscious Use of Self,

The Leader’s Path to Self-Mastery

Conscious Use-of-Self is a necessary competency for people in positions where they are leading, coaching, and empowering others to act. We act too often automatically, from habitual patterns that may not be appropriate for the current situation. Conscious choice is a better choice when our actions will have important impact.
