Others Know You Best – A Major Wake Up Call.
I follow a lot what research says in my area of reputation, and I just read an article in Wall Street Journal about a study performed by Dr. Tasha Eurich who has established that people with a high level of self-awareness make smarter decisions and are more successful.
Eric Schmidt, former CEO of Google and board member of Apple, said in an interview that one thing that you’re never good at is seeing yourself as others see you. In fact, research shows that others know your strengths and flaws best and in an article in Forbes, they suggested transforming the word self-awareness to other-awareness.
It ought to be a major wake-up call since this is what knowing your reputation is all about and why it opens up so many possibilities and makes you more successful. It’s time to take control of your professional approach.
