    • My influencing skills with the SMT is difficult and I feel stuck?
    • I tend to equate the exercise of power with the pursuit of my self-interest
    • My leadership primary focus is on ‘doing things right’ and not ‘doing the right things’
    • I’m unaware of the extent to which my values and belief system influences my selection and interpretation of factual information
    • We have a lot of un-discussable issues and inefficient meetings within the team
    • Our structures and behaviours prevent innovative ideas from surfacing
    • We have competition instead of collaboration among team members……etc.
