A vital way of becoming more effective in both business and life is by becoming more self-aware. If you can become aware of your self – your strengths and your weaknesses – then, you can become aware of the effects you create. Only once you know how you effect others can you know how to change your behaviors, or even whether you should.
Implementing the guidelines in this microcourse is the first step in a continual process of deepening your awareness of your self and the effects you create. Becoming more aware of who you are and how you act can only lead to greater rewards in both your professional and personal life.
By the end of this microcourse you should be able to:
- Define the self and different aspects of the self
- Learn from introspection
- Understand the nature and value of emotions
- Appreciate yourself
- Appreciate others
- Improve effectiveness
