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. Humility is present when self-awareness is clear. It influences our attitudes, behaviors and relationships with others.
It is also important to have awareness on how other people perceive us and experience us. Self-awareness is strong when perceptions about ourselves and 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.
The DISC Model Alive helps provides insights, tools and practical strategies in how to increase personal and team self-awareness so that individuals can flourish and work groups transform into high-performing, emotionally intelligent teams.
