The paper “ Self-Awareness - the Basis for the Success of Any Manager in Controlling the Diversity within the Workplace” is a dramatic example of the personal statement on human resources. Understanding ourselves is the driving force towards achieving our dreams in life. Failure to realize what makes us complete results to us as individuals doing things that slowly reduce our chances of success in life. Self-awareness does not only relate to creating and making an individual complete, but it also ensures that an individual becomes a good manager for different functions in an organization.
This paper analyses self-awareness and its implications towards management as well as addressing my action plan towards self-awareness. Self-awareness is the act that an individual possesses when he/she shows a clear perception of his/her personality which includes the elements of strengths, weakness, thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions. The action allows an individual does not to forget managers to fully understand other people; workers within the organization on how they perceive you as an individual, your actions as well as your attitudes and response to them at the moment (Heine, 2015).
Developing self-awareness enables an individual to create changes in thoughts and interpretations within his/her mind to realize the objectives for whatever thing he/she wants to achieve. Realizing our positions and interpretations ensures that we change our emotions, as we will realize what is good for execution from the reactions of our minds. It is from this awareness that an individual can realize self-improvement in society as it enables one to easily fit in any society without any fear. The awareness enables us to have a good communication style as we will communicate with already realized weaknesses and shaped behavior.
Through this, the individual realizes the ways through which he/she can change the perceptions of others as well as be able to manage others effectively (Heine, 2015).
