What is self-awareness? Tim and Sara highlight five aspects of self-awareness that are essential for courageous, Christ-centered leaders and in daily life. 

Explore these five aspects and listen throughout the month of March to episodes highlighting how different leaders continue to deepen their self-awareness. 

Five Aspects of Self-Awareness to Consider

  1. Identifying emotions – Can you name what you’re feeling and the thoughts associated with those feelings?
  2. Accurate self-perception – Do you know how your words and actions land on people?
  3. Recognizing strengths – What can you do better than anyone else? This isn’t a competition, but an awareness of your giftedness. 
  4. Possessing strong self-confidence – Does your ego balance itself out? You’re able to do things because you have an ego, but your ego gets checked with humility 
  5. Possessing self-efficacy – Can you exert control over your own motivation, behavior, and social environment?
