off, self-awareness and introspective are two important characteristics for all
individuals, but mainly for managers. In Webster dictionary, self- awareness is
an awareness of one’s own personality or individuality. Introspective focuses
on one’s own thoughts and feelings (Webster dictionary). In a business,
self-awareness is highly important for a manager as it determine a sufficient
way of accomplishing a task, as well as a leadership style. Furthermore, when a
manage uses self-awareness in their job it allows them to be aware of employee’s
work, as well as help them improve their jobs, so they can perform at a rate
that a manger feels and believe is efficient to get the job done proper and
faster. In continuation, if a manger fails to become self- aware, it can result
in an organization to become inefficient, which can lead to a downwards slope
of an organizations success. After reading the manager’s job, by Henry
Mintzberg, he explains that to determine a good manager they must examine
themselves and how they contribution to their job. This can be displayed in
Peter Drucher, managing oneself as he states, “a person can perform only from
strength. One cannot build performance on weakness, let alone on something one
cannot do at all” (Managing Oneself). This quote explains that manager’s must
examine their strengths and weakness in order to improve oneself. Overall,
self-awareness and introspective are important aspects to a manager, as it
helps them improve their job and the organization.
