Self-Awareness Training for Leaders

Know thy self and thou shalt be better leaders...

Just think about the impact that can come from a manager who is self-aware, appreciative of different perspectives, committed to using their strengths and aware of their blind spots …. versus one who is not.

Self-awareness is an essential attribute of great leaders and people managers, it is a cornerstone of emotional intelligence and therefore essential to your agency. Self-aware leaders make better decisions, set priorities better and make better choices through enhanced communication and leadership maturity.

By knowing your values, personality and emotions, and how these affect your actions and the actions of others, you’ll be better able to manage your own stress, make better decisions and lead others to do the same.

In addition, when you provide training opportunities that encourage personal skill development and professional growth, you build loyalty and improve retention of top talent.

In this session we’ll be using a series of tools to help us probe your emotional intelligence, your strengths and your big 5 personality traits.
