Self awareness is a complex finding that is based on two different sometimes contradicting sources for this awareness. The first is the "self" itself. One knows about him/herself mainly through his own perspective about him/herself. While this is considered as a kind of subjective source for self awareness as it implies some of biases that may deviate a lot of our understanding. The second source is the other people around. Self-awareness isn’t one truth. It’s a delicate balance of two distinct even competing viewpoints. This creates two types of self-awareness. Types of self-awareness: Internal self-awareness represents how clearly we see our own values passions aspirations fit with our environment reactions including thoughts feelings behaviors strengths and weaknesses and impact on others. It’s easy to assume that being high on one type of awareness would mean being high on the other. But research has found virtually no relationship between them. As a result we identify four leadership archetypes each with a different set of opportunities to improve. Internal self-awareness External self-awareness: means understanding how other people view us in terms of those same factors listed above External self-awareness

This is where employees begin to fully realize the true benefits of self-awareness. High External Self Awareness They don’t yet know who they are what they stand for or how their teams see them. As a result they might feel stuck or frustrated with their performance and relationships. They can be so focused on appearing a certain way to others that they could be overlooking what matters to them. Over time they tend to make choices that aren’t in service of their own success and fulfillment.
