Awareness - The first critical step in improving and enhancing performance
Improving or enhancing anything on a personal or organizational level first requires an awareness of your current state, an awareness of where you are now. It requires being self-aware about your present capabilities and capacities. Individuals and organizations must continually improve and innovate in order to remain competitive in a fast paced, ever changing business environment, or stagnate. Individually, people themselves must continually strengthen their own capabilities and capacities in order to grow, to achieve more results and to bring greater value to those they serve in all parts of their lives.
So assessment is about understanding the starting point, gaining clarity and becoming self-aware. For organizational leaders assessment is a vital part of developing business strategies, understanding the organizational culture, and understanding capabilities of people in order to have the right people in the right place to ensure success.
