Smart self-assessment plus clearly defined requests for feedback can prevent imposter syndrome—and being caught off-guard by hidden weaknesses.


No matter what obstacles you face, you first need to get deep with knowing you — your strengths, your values, your comfort zones, your blind spots, and your biases.


When you fully understand yourself, you’ll know where your true north lies.


To develop our self-awareness and to calibrate our strengths and weaknesses, we must confront the truth of what we’re really like by asking others for their unvarnished opinions. The goal isn’t to seek praise


the goal is to give our peers a safe opening where they can be honest — even brutally honest.
