Do you know personality?

Strategic self-awareness

Personality is composed of two parts, identity – how we see ourselves – and reputation – how others see us.

For most people there is an important disparity between identity and reputation that can cause them to ignore feedback and derail. Strategic self-awareness is about achieving a realistic view of one’s strengths and weaknesses, and how those strengths and weaknesses compare to those of his or her peers. Hogan instruments can help you bridge the gap.
