Self Awareness
In emotional intelligence 2.0, Bradberry and Greaves discuss how the biggest challenge to developing self awareness is objectivity. Well, when it comes to developing this skill, it's time we make it a community effort, build in accountability, metrics, and intention. Only 36% of over 500,000 people tested in a study taking place over a decade were able to accurately identify their emotions as they happened. 83% of people high in self awareness, are top performers and just 2% of bottom performers are high in self awareness. Why? When you are more self aware, you are more likely to pursue the right opportunities, put your strengths to work, and keep your emotions from holding you back.
