Driver Messenger 13 September 2018 Driver Messenger 13 September 2018.htm[19/09/2018 12:24:32 PM] Self reflection is defined as: careful thought about your own behaviour and beliefs We can also give careful thought to an experience, a change we have undergone or a learning event. There are 3 main benefits of self-reflection: 1. Strengthening Emotional Intelligence When taking time to self-reflect you are looking inwards. This helps to build two components to emotional intelligence: self-awareness and self-regulation. Self awareness gives you the ability to understand your emotions, strengths, weaknesses, drives, values and goals, and recognize their impact on others. Self-regulation involves the ability to control or redirect your disruptive emotions and impulses and adapt to changing circumstances. Building these skills will improve both your personal life and professional role as a leader. 2. Acting With Integrity Becoming clear on your core values will help to strengthen your integrity and lead you to better decisions. Our integrity is often put to the test during stressful times. Taking time to review your key decisions and actions in the recent past and evaluating them against your core values is critical to acting with integrity. Doing this consistently can solidify your values and make the decision making process easier in the future. 3. Being More Confident Confidence is crucial for managing a busy, complex life that includes meeting career, family, community and self needs. It helps in effective communications, decision-making, and influence building. The more your reflect on your strengths and how you can build upon them the more confident you will be in the future. We become more confident in where our strengths lie and how to close the gaps in our areas of weakness.
