Self-Awareness: What It Is and How to Cultivate It

Organizational psychologist, Tasha Eurich, describes her extensive research on individual self-awareness and its implications for our personal and professional lives. 

 
 

For reflection alone or together: 

Eurich states that 95% of people believe they are self-aware while only 10-15% actually meet the criteria. She suggests that we are probably "doing introspection wrong" by asking ourselves "why" instead of "what." Thinking of a problem you are stuck on, how might your view of this problem change by asking "what" rather than "why?"

How might you increase your self-awareness by requesting feedback from trusted colleagues?
