In our book, Nan Langowitz contributes key insights on the fundamental role of self-awareness in the development of entrepreneurial leaders and their competencies. Consider, for instance, Jeff Immelt, CEO of General Electric (GE):
He has newly refocused on what he describes as becoming “self-reflective on steroids.” Immelt views his approach, and the one he hopes other leaders at GE will adopt, as a means to promote greater innovation to drive GE’s performance. While most entrepreneurial leaders do not have the high-profile role of an Immelt, each has unique strengths and challenges as well as passions, values, and skills that he or she needs to understand and engage to drive opportunities.
