Personal Leadership

The idea of personal leadership centers around the concept of self-authorship. At our best, we each have the capacity to learn, grow and adapt, becoming the truest form of ourselves. We have the autonomy and ability to develop our strengths and overcome our shortcomings. Importantly, personal leadership centers around taking accountability for the direction of our lives and defining the path we want to travel.

Researcher and educator Marchia Baxter Magolda (2001) defined self-authorship as "the internal capacity to define one's beliefs, identity and social relations.” Being one's authentic self is essential to personal leadership.
