Today’s VUCA world we are being faced with challenges and unprecedented complexities the world of leaders and managers have never seen before. “The solutions to our current problems cannot be solved from the level of consciousness that created them. They can only be solved from a higher order of consciousness, one that is more complex than the complexity we face. Therefore, it is prudent, we uplevel our inner skills now so we lead consciously at work and in the world. In the months to come, I will outline the 6 conscious inner game skills we can all learn and grow to become the people we need to be to impact the greatest positive change in the years to come. In today’s solo episode, I will guide you in how to cultivate the skill of self-awareness as a way of turning inward, reflecting on your experiences, your motivations and the consequences of your actions so that you can see your blindspots with compassion, learn, and grow. By cultivating the inner game of self awareness, others will perceive you as confident, present, capable, even visionary. Increased self-awareness will allow you an important skill to stay present and grounded amidst all the changes at work and life.
