    • SELF AWARENESS • Self Awareness can be defined as the ability to perceive one’s own existence, including one’s own traits, feelings and behaviors. It is a personal understanding of the one’s own identity. It is the basis for many other human traits, such as accountability and consciousness. • Self Awareness is empowering because it can reveal where the performance problems are and indicate what can be done to improve performance 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

    • It is important to answer the question “Who is a self aware person”? A self aware person is one who: • Is aware of one’s strength and limitations: one knows what he can do well and what he is not good at. • Has a clear idea of one’s priorities: one knows what is important for him and does not waste his time going after things he doesn’t believe in. • Is aware of differences in attitudes, values and beliefs are the primary causes of conflicts. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • Cont….. • One is aware of his fears and anxieties and the defenses he usually employs to protect his sanity. • One has relatively stable and strong self image and is not unduly perturbed by what others say about oneself. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • Personal development through Self Awareness • It helps managers identify gaps in their management skills, which promotes 1. skill development. :It also helps managers find situations in which they will be most effective, 2. assists with intuitive decision making 3. and aids stress management and 4. motivation of oneself and others 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • Skill development • Improvement projects should normally begin with an assessment of the gap between the current situation and desired future situation. Having accurate sense of who you are helps you decide what you should do to improve. Often, self-awareness will reveal a skills gap that you want work on. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • KNOWING YOUR STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESS • Self-awareness helps you exploit your strengths and cope with your weakness. For instance, if you are someone who is good at “seeing the big picture “ that surrounds decisions, but not as good at focusing on the details, you might want to consult colleagues and subordinates that are more detailed- oriented when making major decisions. • Co- operation between big- picture –oriented decisions makers and detailed- oriented decision makers can produce high quality decisions. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • Developing intuitive decision making skills • Leaders with well developed emotional self awareness are more effective intuitive decision makers. In complex situations, intuitive decision makers process large amounts of sometimes unstructured and ambiguous data, and they choose a course of action based on a “ gut feeling” or a “sense” of what’s best. • This type of decision making is becoming more important for managers as the rate of change and the levels of uncertainty and complexity in their competitive environments increase. • Managers who are highly emotionally self aware are better able to read their “gut feeling” and use them to guide decisions 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • Stress Management • Jobs that don’t suit your personality to give you more stress than jobs that are more well-matched. This is not to say that you should never take a job that conflicts with your personality. However, be aware that you will need to work extra hard to develop the skills for that job, and there are jobs that would be less stressful for you. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • Motivation • Self awareness is empowering because it can reveal where the performance problems are and indicate what can be done to improve performance. In addition awareness of your psychological needs can increase your motivation by helping you understand and seek out the rewards that really desire such as a sense of accomplishment, additional responsibility, an opportunity to help others, or a flexible work schedule. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • Assumptions of Self Awareness There are certain basic assumptions about Self Awareness whose understanding is essential. 1. It is a self responsibility. 2. It involves internalizing, i.e. perceiving self behavior to have certain outcomes. 3. It is a continuous learning process. Therefore, constant reappraisal and analysis is a must. Sometimes, it is not just learning; it is also learning how to learn. Thus, learning becomes part and parcel of one’s behavioral repertoire. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

This means being able to realistically acknowledge one’s strength and limitations ( which is part of being human) and at the same time accepting oneself as worthy and worthwhile without conditions or reservations. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • Causes For Healthy Self Esteem • The origins of self esteem can be traced back to one’s childhood, from where it develops and plays a part in adult life. • Childhood experiences that include being praised, being listened to, being spoken to respectfully, getting attention and hugs, experiencing success in sports or school and having trustworthy friends lead to healthy self esteem. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

Needs continuous success to maintain the mask of positive self esteem, which may lead to problems with perfectionism, competition and burnout 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • The Rebel • He acts against the opinions or good will of others- especially people who are important or powerful- don’t matter. • Lives with constant anger about not feeling “good enough”. Continuously needs to prove that other’s judgment and criticisms don’t hurt, which may lead to problems like blaming others excessively, breaking rules and laws, or fighting authority. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • The loser • He acts as helpless and unable to cope with the world and waits for someone to come to the rescue. Uses self pity or indifferences as a guard against fear of taking responsibility for changing his or her life. • Looks constantly to others for guidance which can lead to such problems as lacking assertiveness skills, under- achievement, and excessive reliance on others in relationship. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

    • Measures To Overcome Low Self Esteem There are three steps one can take to begin to change one’s self esteem: 1. Rebut the inner critic: 2. Practice self nurturing 3. Get help from others 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • Step 1: Rebut the inner critic The first important step in improving self esteem is to begin to challenge the negative messages of the critical inner voice. For eg: as a student one says; • “ I failed the class test. I don’t understand anything in class. I’m such an idiot. Who am I fooling ? I shouldn’t be taking this course. I’m stupid and I don’t belong in college”. • One needs to rebut the critic by saying; “ I did poorly on this one test, but I’ve done O.K on all the assignments. There are some things here that I don’t understand as well as I thought I did, but I can do the material- I’ve done fine in other classes that were just as tough. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • Step: 2 Practice Self Nurturing • Since one’s self esteem is in part due to how others have treated us in the past, the second step to more healthy self esteem is to begin to treat oneself as a worthwhile person. • Start to challenge past negative experiences or messages by nurturing and caring for oneself in ways that show that one is valuable, competent, deserving and lovable. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • • There are several components to self nurturing: • Practice self basic things. • Plan fun & relaxing things for yourself • Reward yourself for your accomplishments • Remind yourself of your strengths & achievements. • Forgive yourself when you don’t do all you’d hoped 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • Step 3: Get Help From Others Getting help from others is often the most important step one can take to improve his or her self esteem, but it can also be the most difficult. People with low self esteem often don’t ask for help because one feels one doesn’t deserve it. But since low self esteem is often caused by how other people treated you in the past, you may need the help of other people in the present to challenge the critical message that come from negative past experiences. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
    • Cont.. Here are some ways to get help from others: • Ask for support from friends • Get help from teachers & other helpers. • Talk to a therapists or counselor. 4/10/2013 Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com
