Identify Patterns

Look at past successes and failures and identify patterns. Did you succeed in leading a team with a clear goal or struggle when it was less clear? Reflect on your leadership strengths and weaknesses. Are you good with innovative ideas, but not at implementing them? An honest self-evaluation is an effective way to judge your leadership. Identify the pattern or problem and you have a solution.
