Have you ever asked yourself? “Why are they acting that way?” or “Why are they treating me like this?” A lack of understanding of ourselves and others can lead to some real problems such as poor communication and unmet expectations. So where do you start? With yourself.

Success Starts With Self-awareness

The more you know about YOU, the more opportunity there is for growth, and the more you learn about others. 

Each of us has our own unique personality complete with its own set of preferences and expectations. It’s with these preferences that we behave and respond the way we do. For example, someone with more of a dominant style, prefers to take on the leadership role and sole decision maker, with often little or no regard to others’ opinions. Someone with a more a supportive style is sensitive and can be easily intimidated and withdrawal instead letting their feelings know. This will inevitably lead to tension and hostility.

Sound familiar?

Adapt To Their Style

Knowing this about yourself and your partner, makes you realize that in order to make this relationship work, you’ll both need to adapt to each other’s styles. Now I don’t mean making a huge change, but just by tweaking a word or tone, will allow you to share your message in a way that truly resonates with each other. For example, our dominant style will need to ‘soften’ their tone and understand that their partner may need more assurances and appreciation to feel that they’re valued. Their supportive partner will also need to ask for help when needed and be firmer and more decisive. Being more direct may not come easily, but necessary to communicate more effectively.

We all strive to seek and make a connection. Successful relationships that are built based on respect and trust, not a power struggle.

Your inability to express yourself has a direct impact on accomplishing your personal and professional goals.
