We are your secret weapon to success!
We help you shortcut what can sometimes take years to work out, not only about yourself, but others in your team or business.
Becoming a Conscious Leader, starts with having greater Self Awareness – CLARITY on who you are.
- What you’re naturally good at and why.
- What motivates you to exceed and what demotivates you.
- Why certain people push your buttons and you would rather work with other types of people.
- Why you think you’re doing everything you can to communicate with a team member or colleague but not getting results.
- Who you need to surround yourself with to be successful.
- How others can perceive you under pressure.
So, what is Self Awareness?
Self-awareness is your ability to truly “know yourself”.
It is being able to recognize what you look like when you’re at your best, your worst and the impact it has on others around you. In other words, you need to be aware of why you’re behaving the way you are and how your behavior is affecting others.
Why is it important?
Self-awareness is key to not only great leadership but a great life.
“When you have greater self awareness, you’re able to make better decisions, when you make better decisions they lead to better results”
How do you get it?
Self-awareness grows as our life experiences grow.
Some people are naturally more connected and aware of themselves and the impact they have on those around them, however, for many others, it doesn’t come so naturally.
Ever worked with or known someone who was “blissfully unaware”? Chances are for a minute you were probably quite jealous of them, not having a care in the world, BUT, it probably wouldn’t last for long.
By answering 24 questions online (which takes approximately 7-10 minutes) you are able to gain incredible insight into yourself, your team or business and create an EXTENDED DISC Profile specifically unique to who you are.
What is EXTENDED DISC?
EXTENDED DISC is founded upon one of the oldest and most well known and trusted behavioural profiling tools – DISC. DISC has been around since the early 1920’s when psychologist and Lawyer William Martin Moulton completed a study on the normal emotions of human behaviour.
He discovered there are 4 distinct types of behaviour in every human, but in varying degrees.
We all have what’s called a Natural or default way of behaving. This is referred to as our “Natural Style” Profile ie: it comes most naturally to us. It takes the least amount of energy and effort.
When you are at work, you have what is called a “Perceived Need to Adjust” Profile. This may or may not be the same as your Natural Profile.
Sometimes (for a variety of reasons) you may behave at work in a way that is different to how you would naturally behave and that is ok.
It’s all simply information to give us greater insight into you. What’s important to you, what motivates you, demotivates you, what you need to be successful in your role, whether you’re in the right role, what you might find easy or struggle with. What you need to be aware of when having conversations with other team members or clients. How you may need to shift your communication or leadership style to engage or connect with other people.
There are no profiles that are “good” or “bad.” No profile is “better” or “worse” than another. It’s all simply information to enable us to become more self aware and as a result, make more conscious and better decisions.
If you want to shortcut what can sometimes take years to work out, not only about yourself, but others in your team or business, let’s talk.
