2×2 Maps

Introspectors – Clear on who they are but don’t challenge their own views or search for blind spots by getting feed back from others. This can harm their relationships and limit their success.

Seekers – They don’t yet know who they are, what they stand for, or how their teams see them. As a result, they feel stuck or frustrated with their performance and relationships

Aware – They know who they are, what they want to accomplish, and seek out and value other’s opinions. There is where leaders begin to fully realize the true benefits of self-awareness.

Pleasers – They can be so focused on appearing a certain way to others that they could be overlooking what matters to them. Over time, they tend to make choices that aren’t in service of their own successes and fulfillment.
