Harvard Business Review ran a simulation exercise with over 58 teams and 300 leaders. It proves that higher self-awareness affects decision-making, co-ordination, and conflict management.
The article states: “For teams to perform effectively, each member must possess a combination of technical and interpersonal skills (higher, or Active Self-Awareness) and constantly adjust their contributions to meet the team’s needs. Correctly understanding one’s capabilities relative to others is therefore paramount.”
Of course, we don’t ever think that WE can sometimes be that person with poor behaviour. It doesn’t occur to us that we’re someone else’s problematic person.
