Self-awareness

Are you making the most of your strengths and interests?
What about the people and teams in your organisation – are they?

How does self-awareness improve performance?

When people can play to their strengths and interests, they feel more fulfilled and engaged with what they do. This has a direct effect on performance. But how do people learn about their strengths and interests? How can we help to realise potential?

One route is through self-awareness.

Our research found that people with increased self-awareness feel more confident, and feel that they make better decisions and make better use of their strengths (Type and Self-Awareness, OPP Ltd, 2017).

Self-awareness helps people to understand:

  • Why they behave the way they do
  • What they need to do differently to improve a situation
  • Why other people behave the way they do

This understanding improves interactions between people, which raises performance levels. The benefits to the workplace are obvious: individuals perform better and see their wellbeing increase. Organisations improve their performance and become better places to work.
