CenturyThe toughest coaching session of my professional career began with me staring, for what seemed like an eternity, at the top of a senior executives bald head That head belonged to Steve, a construction company boss with a bleeding balance sheet Hed been in the job for just four months when his CEO asked me to come in and help him.That morning, Id taken the elevator to the eighth floor, waited in the reception area, and was finally shown to Steves palatial office by an assistant whose voice shook slightly when she announced my name As the door closed silently behind me, Steve didnt look up from his computer, acknowledging my presence only with a long sigh and an aggressive flurry of mouse clicks Which left me standing there, awkwardly staring at his head and admiring the contents of a presentation cabinet It included a large award in the shape of a demolition ball, and that really said a lot about the situation.Im not easily unnerved, but as the seconds dragged by, I began to feel the challenge that lay ahead of me as a sensation of mild nausea It didnt help that I was holding a red folder bulging with interview notes that told me just how volatile this man could be.Should I take a seat I finally ventured.Please, Dr Eurich, he sighed impatiently, still not looking up Whatever makes you comfortable.As I sat down and opened my folder, ready to begin, Steve pushed his chair back Finally, he looked at me Let me tell you a thing or two about my operation here Then, with the restlessness of a caged tiger, he began pacing up and down behind his desk, sharing his ambitious vision for the business and his hardball leadership philosophy I was impressed with his energyI also knew that our work together would require all he could muster.Steves department, he told me, was in trouble, although I already knew that His predecessor had been fired because of cost overruns, so his in the red business unit needed to drive growth while finding efficiencies wherever possible There was no room for failure, but Steve had no doubt that he was just the man for the task His self proclaimed leadership skills included setting high expectations, rallying his troops, and being tough but fair I know Ill face challenges in this role, he confidently stated, but I also know how to get the best out of my people.Unfortunately, Steve was totally delusional.What Id uncovered when I interviewed his direct reports, and what his CEO had only begun to sense, was that Steves reign was already proving disastrous In the 16 weeks since his official promotion, three employees had quit A fourth, who had recently started taking blood pressure medication because of the Steve stress, was halfway out the door Though not a single member of Steves team questioned his capabilities and experience, they thought that he wasto use a polite term than they dida complete jerk Hed bark orders at them, question their competence, and scream at them in a way they found unprofessional and frightening And they werent a bunch of whiners, either I found them to be seasoned, seen it all types who werent looking to be coddled Steve had simply pushed them too far.To be fair, Steve had grown up in the rough and tumble industry of construction, where hed learned that great leadership often meant he who yelled the most And while this hard charging style may have been passable in the past, it was a costly miscalculation in his current role, especially against the backdrop of the companys collaborative culture.As he paced around his new office, proudly detailing all the ways he was exactly the visionary leader his company needed during this difficult period, I marveled at how utterly oblivious he was His behavior was hurting his employees morale, his teams performance, and his own reputation Even losing some of his best people hadnt shaken his self image as an effective and respected leader But Steves team had had enough of his bullying And somehow, I had to find a way to break that to him More fundamentally, Steve lacked the single most important, and yet least examined, determinant of success or failurein the workplace, or anywhere else Ive spent the last four years studying self awareness My research team and I quantitatively surveyed thousands of people around the world in ten separate investigations We analyzed nearly 800 scientific studies We conducted in depth interviews with dozens of people who made dramatic improvements in their self awareness.While a precise definition is complex than it first seems, self awareness is, at its core, the ability to see ourselves clearlyto understand who we are, how others see us, and how we fit into the world Since Plato instructed us to know thyself, philosophers and scientists alike have extolled the virtues of self awareness Indeed, this ability is arguably one of the most remarkable aspects of being human In his book The Telltale Brain, neuroscientist V S Ramachandran poetically explains Any ape can reach for a banana, but only humans can reach for the stars Apes live, contend, breed and die in forestsend of story Humans write, investigate, and quest We splice genes, split atoms, launch rockets We peer upward and delve deeply into the digits of pi Perhaps most remarkably of all, we gaze inward, piecing together the puzzle of our own unique and marvelous brain This, truly, is the greatest mystery of all.Some have even argued that the ability to understand ourselves is at the core of human survival and advancement For millions of years, the ancestors of Homo sapiens evolved almost painfully slowly But, as Ramachandran explains, about 150,000 years ago, there was an explosive development in the human brainwhere, among other things, we gained the ability to examine our own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, as well as to see things from others points of view as we will learn, both of these processes are absolutely critical for self awareness Not only did this create the foundation for higher forms of human expressionlike art, spiritual practices, and languageit came with a survival advantage for our ancestors who had to work together to stay alive Being able to evaluate their behaviors and decisions and read their impact on other members of the tribe helped them, to use a slightly modern reference, not get voted off the island.Flash forward to the twenty first century Though we may not face the same day to day threats to our existence as our ancestors did, self awareness is no less necessary to our survival and successat work, in our relationships, and in life There is strong scientific evidence that people who know themselves and how others see them are happier They make smarter decisions They have better personal and professional relationships They raise mature children Theyre smarter, superior students who choose better careers Theyre creative, confident, and better communicators Theyre less aggressive and less likely to lie, cheat, and steal Theyre better performers at work who get promotions Theyre effective leaders with enthusiastic employees They even lead profitable companies.On the flip side, a lack of self awareness can be risky at best and disastrous at worst In business, regardless of what we do or what stage were at in our careers, our success depends on understanding who we are and how we come across to our bosses, clients, customers, employees, and peers This becomes even important the higher we ascend on the corporate ladder senior executives who lack self awareness are 600 percent likely to derail which can cost companies a staggering 50 million per executive And generally, un self aware professionals dont just feel less fulfilled in their careerswhen they get stuck, they tend to have trouble figuring out what their next phase should even be.The list goes on and on After so many years of researching the subject, I would go so far as to say that self awareness is the meta skill of the twenty first century As youll read in the pages ahead, the qualities most critical for success in todays worldthings like emotional intelligence, empathy, influence, persuasion, communication, and collaborationall stem from self awareness To put it another way, our self awareness sets the upper limit for the skills that make us stronger team players, superior leaders, and better relationship builders And here, even small gains in self awareness can have a big payoff.Now, youd certainly be hard pressed to find many people who dont instinctively know that self awareness is important After all, its a term we tend to toss around pretty freely about our boss, our colleagues, our in laws, our politicians Although have you noticed that when we do, its usually in the negative, as in so and so just isnt self aware Despite the critical role it plays in our success and happiness, self awareness is a remarkably rare quality.For most people, its easier to choose self delusionthe antithesis of self awarenessover the cold, hard truth This is particularly true when our delusion masquerades, as it often does, as insight I recently picked up Travis Bradberrys best selling book Emotional Intelligence 2.0, and I was astonished to learn that over the last decade, our collective emotional intelligence EQ has improved EQ is the ability to detect, understand, and manage emotions in ourselves and others, and countless studies have shown that people who have it are successful, resilient, tolerant of stress, better at building relationships, and But in my work as an organizational psychologist, Bradberrys findings didnt match what I had observed at least anecdotally, Ive seen low EQ becoming , not less, of a problem in recent years.It wasnt until I took the online assessment that came with the book that I identified the stunning source of the discrepancy While, yes, Bradberrys research involved a staggering 500,000 people, his conclusions were based on their own self assessments Think about that for a minute Picture a few of the least emotionally intelligent people you know If you asked them to evaluate their own EQ, how much would you bet that theyd see themselves as at least above average So an alternative, and far likely, explanation for Bradburys findings is a growing gap between how we see ourselves and what we really are In other words, what looked like an increase in EQ was likely a decrease in self awareness.Our increasingly me focused society makes it even easier to fall into this trap Recent generations have grown up in a world obsessed with self esteem, constantly being reminded of their wonderful and special qualities Its far tempting to see ourselves through rose colored glasses than to objectively examine who we are and how were seen And this isnt just a generational problem, or even just an American oneit afflicts people of all ages, genders, backgrounds, cultures, and creeds.Right now, you might be mentally conjuring all the delusional people you know and chucklingthe co worker who thinks hes a brilliant presenter but puts everyone to sleep in meetings the boss who brags about being approachable but terrifies her team the friend who thinks shes a people person but is always the most awkward guest at the party Yet theres something else we all need to consider As the Bible asks, How can you say to your brother, Let me take the speck out of your eye, when all the time there is a plank in your own eye Matthew 7 4 Whether its at work, at home, at school, or at play, were quick to accuse others of being unaware, but we rarely if ever ask ourselves whether we have the same problem Case in point in a survey that I conducted among potential readers of this very book, a full 95 percent reported that they were either somewhat or very self aware The truth is that while most of us think we know ourselves pretty well, this confidence is often unfounded Researchers have established that our self assessments are often flawed in substantive and systematic ways As youll read about soon, studies show that we tend to be terrible judges of our own performance and abilitiesfrom our leadership skills to our car driving prowess to our performance at school and at work The scariest part The least competent people are usually the most confident in their abilities.And in most cases, the planks in our eyes are pretty obvious to everyone but us A tone deaf college student who drops out of school to become a singer A braggadocious boss who reads scores of business books but remains a terrible leader A parent who spends very little time with his kids but thinks hes Dad of the Year A thrice divorced woman whos convinced that the end of each marriage was her exs fault But being overconfident about our abilities isnt the only way that low self awareness can play out Sometimes we lack clarity about our values and goals, causing us to perpetually make choices that arent in our best interests Other times, we fail to grasp the impact were having on the people around us, alienating our colleagues, friends, and families without even knowing it.Now, if thats what unawareness looks like, the next logical question becomes What does it mean to be self aware When I began my four year empirical research program on the subject, answering this question seemed like a rather straightforward place to start Yet I was stunned to learn just how many conflicting definitions existed Without a clear definition of self awareness, though, how could I possibly develop a method to help people improve it So my research team and I spent months reviewing hundreds of studies to see what patterns emerged In the process, we unearthed two main categories of self awareness that, strangely, werent always related.Internal self awareness has to do with seeing yourself clearly Its an inward understanding of your values, passions, aspirations, ideal environment, patterns, reactions, and impact on others People who are high in internal self awareness tend to make choices that are consistent with who they really are, allowing them to lead happier and satisfying lives Those without it act in ways that are incompatible with their true success and happiness, like staying in an unfulfilling job or relationship because they dont know what they want.External self awareness is about understanding yourself from the outside inthat is, knowing how other people see you Because externally self aware people can accurately see themselves from others perspectives, they are able to build stronger and trusting relationships Those low in external self awareness, on the other hand, are so disconnected with how they come across that theyre often blindsided by feedback from others that is, if others are brave enough to tell them And very often, by the time they hear this feedback, their relationships are too far gone to be salvaged.A Business Insider Best Book of 2017A Strategy Business Best
