Consultant Proficiency Resources resumes its Art of Communication building block series; today's post offers information on self-management. According to BetterUp 2021 article, “Self-management is our ability to manage our behaviors, thoughts, and emotions in a conscious and productive way. Someone with strong self-management skills knows what to do and how to act in different situations.
From an organizational perspective, team members' ability to consciously and productively to self-manage is critical to the effective functioning of an organization. Part of effective self-management with empowerment is that employees make good decisions about when to seek additional help or input. Self-management is also linked to EQ/EI in that EQ builds self-awareness that will allow leaders to hone their self-management skills. This building of self occurs during the period of self-reflection.
