How to Administer and Use this Exercise to Facilitate Behavior Change: Often times, individuals believe they are aware of themselves, their strengths and their development areas. When we coach our clients to become gain more awareness of themselves, it is essential for us to facilitate a discussion with them that gauges at what is considered known to them in terms of strengths and development areas and what is considered “blind spots”.
