    he first leg of your journey toward self-development begins with an opportunity to take inventory of what you have and what you still need. This first unit is devoted to intrapersonal effectiveness—understanding yourself (and your goals, strengths, weaknesses, style, biases), and improving self-management skills, such as time management and stress management. As you’ll discover, “knowing yourself” may not be as easy as it sounds. However, we give you the tools to facilitate this process. Each of the four chapters in this unit helps you increase the odds of achieving intrapersonal effectiveness, and ultimately, personal and professional success and satisfaction. This first leg provides a solid start to your journey, as well as a strong foundation on which to build interpersonal, team-based, and leadership skills in the units that follow.…
