What is the value of deep self-awareness for organisations?

According to Gallup’s 2022 Global Workplace Report, only 21% of people are engaged at work, and since the pandemic, we’ve seen people quitting their jobs in record numbers. So how worried should we be and what can we do about it?

Session Context:

Socrates’ famous mantra ‘to know thyself’ – is often described as the most important thing we could ever learn, perhaps even as important as the meaning of life itself. We invited Jonny and Patricia to explore:

– What is the impact we can have on individuals, teams and organisations from encouraging and facilitating greater emotional awareness? 

– What experience have we had with practical tools and activities to encourage more people to develop their emotional understanding of themselves? What are the lessons we can take away? 

– Why should we care about the levels of emotional awareness in our leaders? What have we learnt from advances in neuroscience on this?
