Kindle Edition – E-Book:
Accurate self-awareness is one of the most powerful things a person can possess. To know yourself is the foundational cornerstone to bolstering your emotional intelligence. Knowing your strengths, limitations, skills, emotions, and motivations, fuel self-confidence. Self-awareness influences our attitudes, behaviors, and relationships with others. Effective self-leadership needs clear-eyed self-awareness. You cannot manage what you cannot see.
It is also important to have an awareness of how other people perceive us and experience us. Self-awareness is strong when perceptions about ourselves and the perceptions others have of us are in alignment. If they are not, we can assume there is a disconnect somewhere. Bridging this disconnect is critical to maximizing professional effectiveness.
Business is about relationships. Trust is the currency. When others do not perceive us the way we perceive ourselves, two realities now exist and trusted relationships can waffle. It’s important to remember that perceived reality is reality to that person.
The DISC Model Alive provides insights, tools, and practical strategies on how to increase personal, professional, and team self-awareness. It introduces individuals and teams to effective communication strategies so all can flourish, and where workgroups transform into high-performing, emotionally intelligent teams.
