In closing…

Many leaders are really great at reading and understanding others. People skills are often seen as a trait of a leader. It’s true. You do need to be able to relate to others and inspire them to take action and grow.

The other side of the coin that many miss is self-awareness. Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu once said, “Knowing others is wisdom. Knowing yourself is true mastery.” You have to know what are your strengths, weaknesses, and where lies the opportunity for personal growth. Remember that awareness precedes choice and choice precedes change. When you become self-aware and acknowledge what you’re good at (and what you suck at) you will be in a position to make better choices. That will create change in your restaurant and your life.
