Consciousness; awareness; insight; intuition (Webster’s definition)
What you see and hear depends a good deal on where you are standing; it also depends on what sort of person you are.
C.S. LEWIS, The Magician’s Nephew
Another great leadership skill. One where the leader removes themselves from selfish, self-centered motives such as, “what’s in it for me?”, “how can I cover my rear”, “how can I impress the boss”, to genuinely working to develop the best within themselves, and their employees.
Lewis quote is quite insightful because he realized that what you see, and what you hear influences your perception (was there a word whispered, or was there a grimace instead of a smile that only you saw?). The “sort of person you are” is affected by a myriad of considerations (social style, knowledge, experiences, age, culture, hometown, and on and on).
