Developing Self-Awareness for a Better Leadership

Is the lack of self-awareness limiting the potential of leaders in developing, motivating and driving their peers and employees? What can you do, as a L&D Professional, to support its development for the long run?

Someone said that “Self-Awareness is all that matters”. And it’s not far from the truth: so many times leaders fall short in recognizing their actual performance, potential, strengths and skills. And that’s particularly true when they need to face uncomfortable tasks such as dealing with critical conversations.

Unfortunately, as Tasha Eurich states clearly in her book “insight”, we, as human beings, are remarkably poor judges of ourselves and how we come across, and it’s rare to get candid, objective feedback from colleagues, employees, and even friends and family.

How can you, as a professional of L&D, help leaders realize their gaps in self-awareness, one of the most important skills they should take care of?

How can you design programs that truly speed up the process of self-recognition and the path to a better self-awareness?

The answers to these and other relevant questions come from extensive research done among over 100 large corporates and from years of practical fine-tuning of winning strategies for developing long-lasting self-awareness.

Join Andrea Laus and Matteo Malatesta, from Lifelike, for a discussion on how self-awareness can be stimulated and developed putting leaders in front of the effects of their behaviors along a training made of practice on critical conversations.
