Being or becoming aware of yourself and the world around you is the foundation for any change. Why is self-awareness important? How well do you know yourself? We will be talking about self-deception, methods to increase (self-)awareness and how reflection helps to build a strong foundation for change.
"The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice, there is little we can do to change; until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds." R.D. Laing
