We take hundreds of selfies every year, capturing our moods, what we’ve been doing and where we’ve been. But how often do we take an IINNER SELFIE – looking inside ourselves to understand what our values, passions, aspirations, impact, patterns and reactions are? INNER SELFIE turns the camera inward, helping us develop this self-awareness.
Self-awareness is “the ability to see ourselves clearly — to understand who we are, how others see us, and how we fit into the world around us.” – Tasha Eurich, author of Insight
In the future of work and already now (see World Economic Forum Skills 2022 pic alongside), some of the key skills like Emotional Intelligence, Leadership and social influence and Active learning strategies have a common underlying skill – that of developing and practicing SELF-AWARENESS.
Inner Selfie is for anyone who wants to develop the essential future skill of Self-Awareness, especially if you want to
Develop leadership behaviours and become more effective as a professional by knowing your strengths, limitations, patterns
Know why you feel stuck/restless in what you are doing so you can change that
Target better opportunities/roles by understanding the value you bring – your strengths, skills, leadership behaviours and match that to potential employers
Be a more effective manager by understanding yourself in relation to others and understanding others better
Inner Selfie works best if you’ve had some professional experience (about 3-4 years plus) and are looking at developing yourself for the next leg of your career, by being more self-aware
Inner Selfie gives you takeaways in 7 areas by helping you understand yourself better in these
Values (the principles that guide you)
Passions (what you love to do)
Aspirations (what you want to experience and achieve)
Fit (the environment you require to be happy and engaged)
Patterns (your consistent ways of thinking, feeling and behaving)
Reactions (the thought, feelings, and behaviors that reveal your capabilities)
Impact (the effect you have on others)
Each person’s Inner Selfie is unique. The range of outcomes of Inner Selfie include
Knowing which kinds of jobs/opportunities to target more effectively by understanding one’s skills/values/aspirations
Understanding one’s impact on one’s team/colleagues and adapting one’s behaviours accordingly
Reducing stress/anxiety by understanding one’s reactions to situations and taking steps to change these
Becoming a better leader

I am a participant in the 1 year Business Leadership MBA program at IIM Kozhikode. Kavita had facilitated a very engaging, interactive workshop for us on Career Development in the Future of Work. There was a great mix of self-reflection activities, group exercises and assessments, which helped me to understanding myself and my goals, identify strengths and transferable skills. This was an excellent input for me in planning my overall career development and also learning what will drive career success for me in the long term.
I had a chance to attend Kavyata's session at IIM Kozhikode. During the session, I reflected on my personality and understood how do I behave in certain situations. I reflected on my strengths and weaknesses. I got a lot of useful learning about my areas of improvement and also about how to communicate in a better way during interviews and meetings in formal settings. What I liked especially was Kavita's easy and engaging style of conducting the workshops - there was plenty of opportunity to share our views, ask questions not only limited to the workshop content, learn from each other and think deeply. The reflections and learnings are going to stay with me for my future career development too.
