Day 47: Help people become more self-aware

“Even though self-awareness — knowing who we are and how we’re seen — is important for job performance, career success, and leadership effectiveness, it’s in remarkably short supply in today’s workplace. In our nearly five-year research program on the subject, we’ve discovered that although 95% of people think they’re self-aware, only 10 to 15% actually are.”

In order to improve in their daily jobs, people need to be more aware of their strengths and weaknesses, but the article, Working with people who aren’t self-aware (HBR, 19 October 2018) explains how you can help.

How might you help people become more self-aware so that they recognise when they need to improve or develop their knowledge or skill in any area?
