LONDON, UK — October 20, 2016 — Executive coach, renowned business strategist and speaker, Pa Joof posted a new article on his website entitled, “On a Scale of 1 to 10, How Self-Aware Are You?” in which Mr. Joof defines self-awareness and offers tips to further develop the skill.
According to Joof, “Self-awareness is defined as having a clear understanding of your personality or individuality and understanding how your behavior affects others as well as your attitude and responses. In addition, self-awareness includes having an understanding of how you are perceived by others.” He continues adding, “In today’s business world, self-awareness is considered essential for successful leadership.”
Joof writes, “According to top talent acquisition groups focused on helping companies hire those with leadership skills, self-awareness is the first quality for which they screen.” “They know,” says Joof, “that leaders who foster self-awareness develop tools for leveraging their strengths and confronting their weaknesses. These are the kind of people who earn credibility and cultivate relationships based on trust and respect. “
As Joof explains, “One of the finer qualities of someone who is self-aware is that they remain open to new ideas, inquiry, and constructive criticism.” He adds, “So whether you are looking to join a group or company and rise through the ranks as a leader or you are leading your own company or organization, ask yourself how self-aware you are.”
