From Self-Deception to Self-Mastery

A Roadmap to Being Your Own Hero

An AWA Global Meetup

with Michael K. Sahota

We were incredibly fortunate to welcome Michael K. Sahota, who will led another of his fascinating interactive talks at this FREE AWA community Meetup. As the architect of the Shift3.14 Evolutionary Leadership Framework™ (SELF), Michael offers a pioneering approach that integrates strategy, culture, and leadership, guiding those intent on achieving holistic success.

About this Meetup

Self-deception is often the invisible barrier that hampers both personal and organizational success. When we externalize our challenges—blaming circumstances, leaders, or teammates—we relinquish control and adopt a victim mentality. This is the result of ingrained mind/ego constructs that cloud our perception and limit our effectiveness.

‘From Self-Deception to Self-Mastery: A Roadmap to Being Your Own Hero’ aims to dismantle these mental roadblocks. By mastering our ego-driven thought patterns, we can become not only the architects of our destiny but also catalysts for change within our organizations.

In this engaging session, Michael K. Sahota delves into pivotal tools within his SELF Framework, including ‘Lead No Matter What,’ the Sahota Viewer—a modern take on the Johari window—and the concept of Awareness as a transformative technology.

Watch the video to:

  1. “Learn actionable techniques to overcome self-deception and become a change catalyst.”
  2. “Gain insights into innovative SELF Framework models for decision-making and transformation.”
  3. “Acquire a daily blueprint to transition from victim mentality to empowered leadership.”

In addition to speaking at this event, Michael taught the Certified Leadership course in London.


This Meetup will was held in-person at Just Eat Takeaway.
