15 Simple yet Powerful Self Introspection Questions for Leaders

15 Simple yet Powerful Self Introspection Questions for Leaders

Two things I always love doing.

Self-introspection and creating small milestones to be my better version the very next day.

Both gives me a kick and chance to either get things on track or encourage myself to do it better.

[ctt template=”3″ link=”MpB0a” via=”yes” ]When it comes to leadership, most of the leaders get caught up in management and responsibilities. Whereas leadership is more about creating opportunities, creating more leaders, better results and that too an easier way. Leadership is about celebrating every move with the people around you.[/ctt]

So while I was doing this self-introspection a few days back, I came up with this 15 questions list for leaders and entrepreneurs to help with a self-assessment. I had my own answers. As a leader, consider sparing 15 minutes for yourself and answer these questions. You’d love discovering [challenging] yourself and the leader in you.

Do not forget to share in the comments which question you loved answering the most.

  1. What is my purpose in business & life? Am I spending each minute to sync with my purpose?
  2. What are my principles?
  3. What do I see in future? [5 years]
  4. Where do I find myself in my commitment to self, society and business?
  5. How am I contributing to help my team achieve the goals?
  6. What are my values and how they connect with my team’s emotions & values of each individual?
  7. How do I respond to any change & expected/ unexpected?
  8. How do I model the way to leave footprints and inspiration?
  9. How do I ensure and track my right deeds?
  10. How do I ensure the ability to foresee consequences & make ways?
  11. What’s more important to me? My goals or my people?
  12. What am I doing to think of new ideas & be innovative in my niche?
  13. What am I doing to build a bonding between my people & create an inspiring culture that has work-life balance?
  14. How do I challenge the current situation to be ready for any expected or unexpected revolution?
  15. Am I making a good example to follow for my people?

So, what was your score in the leadership self-assessment? Which question triggered you the most? I would love to hear.
