An article in Physicians’ Practice reports on how organizational psychologist Tasha Eurich sees how physician leaders with self-awareness can help their teams to thrive even in difficult circumstances.
The crucial thing is self-awareness, built on two forms of self-knowledge: leaders’ understanding of who they are internally and how well they understand how others see them.
The article says that according to her research, self-aware people are:
- “Better performers at work”
- “Receive more promotions”
- “More effective communicators”
- “More engaging and motivating leaders”
She says that self-aware health-care leaders tend to:
- “Have higher well being”
- “Lower burnout”
- “And organizations they are a part of deliver higher-quality care and have higher patient satisfaction.”
