The Importance of Awareness

Awareness is important because it is a rare quality. Today especially, self-aware people are more successful in life than people who are not. Awareness is the foundation of wisdom and self-confidence. It helps make smarter decisions and live with their consequences.

There is a well-known Dunning-Kruger effect  - when people mistakenly think they are be tter than most other people. If you have experienced an awareness gap, when your intuition and reality get misaligned, it's like that. Most people have... And isn't it interesting that while most of us are really good at assessing other people, we tend to be wildly inaccurate about our own abilities.

This misalignment is real and can impede our ability to recognize blind spots and achieve success. And so people have been interested in self-awareness – to 'know thyself' – for a long time because with soft skills, what is learned on one scale of experience can be applied to all scales.

Self-knowledge is timeless and all-encompassing.




 

We believe that self-reflection and feedback are key to closing the gap in skills awareness. Therefore, 2gnoMe approach and technology provide a human narrative about skills that matter to people and to their professional organizations.

What if you see how others see you?
