This is the ability to questioning past events, to know how and why they happened with the aim of extracting positive, helpful lessons to guide future activities.
Many leadership efforts fail to achieve result due to failure to harness the benefit of hindsight. The past may have gone, but leaders must enrich his/her competences with the lessons learnt as a way to guide success, instead of relishing in regrets and past errors.
A Leader must ask, what happened to us and why did it happen? What are the lessons learnt and how can the lesson become an asset? Hindsight awareness power helps a leader to see the future with the eyes of the past and create a present with solutions that are sustainable.
