Self-awareness is the ability to know ourselves – our qualities and limits – and be comfortable in our own skin.

Research to date shows that women outperform men on self-awareness, and our data confirm that this is true also in call centre environments.

But what can we all do to further develop our self-awareness skills?

T2 courses explore emotional intelligence techniques that help you thrive at work and at home.
