In an article published earlier this year in People Management, Stephen Bevan (head of HR Research Development at the Institute for Employment Studies) and Sir Gary Cooper (Professor of Organisational Psychology and Health at ALLIANCE Manchester Business School) state that “UK plc needs to see the workforce’s physical and mental health as a major contributor to productivity. This means seeing health as an appreciating asset rather than a burden, and investing in wellbeing as a major contributor to the productive capacity of the UK workforce.”
The link between self-awareness, wellbeing and performance is now well established; in one study carried out by Organisational Psychologist, Tasha Eurich, the research suggested that self-aware people are more confident, more creative, make better decisions, build stronger relationships, and communicate more effectively. Research has also shown that individuals with increased levels of self-awareness are more resilient and better at managing stress and dealing with change. They are also perceived as being more empathetic and understanding and in general they experience higher levels of happiness.
The worrying fact that research has highlighted is that whilst most people believe they are self-aware, in reality as little as 10-15% of people are truly self-aware.
