How Reactive Are You?

How aware are you of your reacting brain’s messages? Do you just automatically respond, or do you question and test what it tells you? 


The ability to step away from your reacting brain is not only essential to making effective judgments in a professional setting; research has repeatedly demonstrated that this self-awareness is a critical component of successful leadership and success in any walk of life. Most importantly of all, it also positively influences overall mental health. This awareness enables you to understand your own emotions, and also to appreciate how other people perceive you, allowing you to adapt your responses in the moment. This skill is critical in being able to engage and influence other people, as well as to manage the impact that your emotions have on others. The good news is that self-awareness is something you can develop.

The first step in improving your self-awareness is to work out where you’re at currently !!
