Self-management

Self-management is the ability of effectively managing one's own emotions and how they impact our decisions and behaviours.

Change is a constant in the world, and the IT world even more. Thus, at all levels, leaders who know how to effectively self-manage their own emotions and how they impact on their own decision-making process and consequent behavior thrive on these changes. When a new database system is announced, for instance, a self-regulating leader will steer clear of a snap judgment, focus on the steps for implementation, and lead the way by example. More positive attitudes at the top mean more positive attitudes throughout the organization.
