The One Thing That Leaders REALLY Need...

Self-Awareness Floricane

It's so nice to see an article-- written by someone other than us-- about the importance of self-awareness in leaders. This post from Psychology Today asserts that the most effective executives have a "realistic assessments of their own abilities." We couldn't agree more, which is why we love using Insights® Discovery as a self-awareness and personal effectiveness tool. It's a simple way to reveal to someone their personal strengths, potential weaknesses, and ideal work environment (among other things). We've seen the combination of an Insights® profile and Intro to Insights workshop completely transform the way people show up at work. We've seen it change teams for the better, and we've seen it alter an individual's career path in a huge and exciting way.

Self-awareness isn’t one of those big marquee leadership qualities like vision, charisma, strategic thinking or the ability to speak eloquently to an audience the size of a small city… but it’s a quieter ancillary quality that enables the high-octane ones to work. To use a chemistry concept, it’s a psychological catalyst.
