“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”   


The starting place for change is self-awareness. There are a range of ways we can enhance knowledge of ourselves, starting with behavioural observation and conversations with trusted others, and/or 360 feedback. 

More formal assessment tools can supplement our understanding and be a valuable adjunct to both individual coaching and effective teamwork.
