Increase your self-awareness with one simple fix

Self-awareness has countless proven benefits — stronger relationships, higher performance, more effective leadership. Sounds pretty great, right? Here’s the bad news: 95% of people think that they’re self-aware, but only 10-15% actually are! Luckily, Tasha Eurich has a simple solution that will instantly improve your self-awareness.

Learning to be awesome at anything you do, including being a leader

Can we learn to lead, or is leadership something we’re born with? In this thought-provoking talk, Tasha Eurich shares a prescription to be not just awesome at leadership, but anything else you want to improve.

Tasha Eurich

As a third-generation entrepreneur, Dr. Tasha Eurich was born with a passion for business, pairing her scientific savvy in human behavior with a practical approach to solving business challenges. As an organizational psychologist, she’s helped thousands of leaders improve their effectiveness, from Fortune 500 executives to early-stage entrepreneurs. Her new book, Insight, reveals the findings of her three-year research program on self-awareness, which she calls the meta-skill of the 21st century.

Research shows that self-awareness, i.e. knowing who we are and how others see us, is the foundation for high performance, smart choices, and lasting relationships. Just one problem: most people aren’t as self-aware as clearly as they could be. Fortunately, it’s a surprisingly developable skill. Tasha Eurich’s research in the Fortune 500 world shows us what it really takes to better understand ourselves on the inside — and how to get others to tell us the honest truth about how we come across.

Three off the top of my head: the Theatre, really interesting scientific studies, and traveling to new countries.

Hobbies / Passions / Fun Facts

I’m reading biographies of US presidents in order. This is a new hobby, and I’ve just started Jefferson. I was a theater major and acted professionally until I realized I wasn’t good enough to, like, own a home and afford health insurance. Luckily, psychology is a close second passion. I’ve already traveled about 150,000 miles this year (end of August) and sometimes worry that I am becoming George Clooney’s character from Up in the Air. My husband is more supportive of this than I can fathom.
