Leadership is a new way of being. Successful organizations and institutions are led by people who have certain qualities which are deeply rooted inside them and when come into view are leading to solutions which lead to the development of the organization as well as its people. This inside-out effect of self and self-development can be a key of success for the leader to pave the way for more sustainable development in the organization as well as in its individual components. Inside-out effect is a transformational change which occurs within a leader and reflects the beauty inside to the world outside by creating relationship in the process of his leadership. The main goal of the current paper is to review the way this internal process occurs and manifested in whole person called leader from different theoretical perspectives. Therefore, the current review is going to explore the concept of self and its role in self-leadership as well as to propose strategies for teacher leaders in enhancing their awareness on personal qualities in leading their classrooms.
