Self-Management is about managing one’s own mood and emotions; time and behaviour; and continuously improving oneself. This emotionally intelligent leadership competency is particularly important. Leaders high in this skill are often described as resilient rather than temperamental in the workplace. The modern workplace is one of high work demands and stress, which can cause negative emotions and outcomes. Self-Management is important in leadership because:

• A leader’s mood can be very infectious and can therefore be a powerful force in the workplace, one that can be both productive and unproductive.
• This skill helps leaders be resilient and manage high work demands and stress, and
• To achieve, maintain and enhance success, leaders need to pay conscious attention to the way they manage time, how they behave and continuously improve how they lead others.
