A large part of our awareness is made up of our conscious competence and conscious incompetence.
We know what we know, and we know what we don’t know.
Part of counseling or coaching is to expand our awareness into the unconscious areas of “unconscious competence” and “unconscious incompetence”.
This is where we may fail to know or appreciate what we are really good at i.e. our “talents”, and we may fail to know what we are really bad at too.
Being more aware of these may help us to solve the problems that for us, were unsolvable before.
Being more aware of these may help our patients to solve the problems that for them, were unsolvable before.
