As we evolve during our careers, we need to manage perception of ourselves because the world around us is quick to use its individual perceptions to define us.  There is always the possibility of someone derailing our efforts through poor images that may be skewed or totally unfounded.  There is always more to what is thought but it is also important to look at ourselves so that we can benefit from understanding the perception of others.  We need to recognize that we reinforce perceptions unintentionally by our actions or often do not hear the subtle suggestions related to a perception by others in our everyday exchanges.  Enhancing self-awareness is a valuable exercise to start in providing the reality of you to others.  The awareness is not related to only negative traits but also positive ones which we may be what we want to define us and need to be enhanced.  As a leader, these perceptions are even more important in your everyday interactions with our staff.   I will discuss how aspects of being in touch with perception can impact the effectiveness your daily life as a lab leader.
