Although it is probably one of the least discussed leadership competencies, self-awareness is possibly one of the most valuable. Self-awareness is being conscious of what you’re good at while acknowledging what you still have yet to learn. organizations benefit far more from leaders who take responsibility for what they don’t know than from leaders who pretend to know it all. Managers who are aware of their weaknesses are often better able to hire others who perform well in categories in which the leader lacks (Lipman, 2013). A person with strong self-awareness should demonstrate their assertiveness through taking bold steps in making critical decisions within the groups they manage or lead. I feel like a strong manager with self-awareness will have a willingness to listen to other’s ideas without feeling threatened by them or the idea itself. An example would be when we developed our SBARS, the nurses revised them to what we liked and what worked the best for us. We showed our nurse manager, she took it to practice council and it was instituted into our report giving.
