Did you know there is NO POSITIVE CORRELATION between time spent trying to become self-aware and actually becoming more self-aware? (Eurich, 2017)

In short, additional self-reflection doesn’t necessarily make you more self-aware. 

This surprising finding has since fueled the career and research of Tasha Eurich, and inspired her to teach others how to enhance the quality of their introspection.

Tasha Eurich is an organizational psychologist, researcher, and New York Times best-selling author.  Globally recognized as the #1 self-awareness coach, communication, and organizational culture expert, she uses science to help leaders achieve positive, measurable change.

In today’s episode, she shares several insights about the science and strategy of self-awareness, including:

  • A tactical definition of what self-awareness is, and what it is NOT (12:20)
  • The benefits and consequences of introspection (26:00)
  • How to get GREAT feedback by asking the right questions (39:20)
  • The seven types of self-knowledge that separate the aware from the unaware (58:10)
