Social Awareness

Posted by Mark Salinas on May 9, 2008

I read a great post written by Susan Davis at http://www.allbusiness.com it was about “Social Awareness”. Basically it is how well you understand others, identifying their body language, actions, etc. and how this can improve the work atmosphere. “Social Awareness” that I would also call “Mirror Imaging” or NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming). I believe Social Awareness is a learned skill that becomes habit after much trial and effort. The individuals that have acquired this skill naturally are often people that have been involved in a relationship or upbringing in which they were the caretaker. Again I believe that “Social Awareness” is a skill that promotes a better understanding of individuals beyond the words spoken and can lead to a much more positive, productive environment.
