    SELF-AWARENESS is an essential factor in reconciling well-being and performance in the workplace. It can be defined as the knowledge that an individual acquires about himself throughout his life, through his various experiences. Good self-awareness enables everyone to be more confident, agile, creative and sociable. It’s the foundation of every other skill needed to develop human potential.  But then, do young talents really know who they are? According to our data, those under 35 have a lower level of interoception* than those aged 36-45 (-12%), and over 46 (-21%). 


    Interoception stats
    In neuroscience, self-awareness is measured by INTEROCEPTION, the ability to know how one’s body and emotions feel. Better interoception has a scientifically validated impact on WELL-BEING³ and improved DECISION MAKING. And knowing oneself better is a key expectation of young talents, who are looking for personal meaning in their actions.

      • TEACH THEM TO BE ASSERTIVE: build their self-confidence through small group exercises. Each person in turn takes the lead and proposes a number of ideas on a variety of subjects, while having to convince his or her peers of the validity of the ideas put forward. The aim is to get them out of their comfort zone, so that they learn to assert themselves and become leaders in the face of uncertainty and change.

      • TRAIN FUTURE ‘MANAGERS – COACHES’: your young talents are increasingly looking for close, inspiring and human management. This type of leadership encourages secure, engaging environments in which young talents feel confident and entitled to express their own ideas. 72 % of companies that have used manager-coaches to develop their teams’ potential have seen a clear improvement in their skills (ICF 2020 Study).
