Unlock the power of self-awareness. Self-awareness is your ability to have a sense of your ‘self’ being separate to others. It is one of a few unique abilities that make you human. In this video, positive psychology trainer, Eleanor Shakiba, helps us understand the two broad categories of self-awareness and the micro skills you can develop to prevent self-consciousness. Resilience training can help cultivate greater self-awareness, which empowers individuals to become more mindful, resourceful and compassionate.
