Self-Awareness Is The Beginning Of All Wisdom
At Teal Village, you are expected to show up as your authentic-self with clear purpose, deep self-knowledge of your uniqueness, strenghts, and imperfections. This requires you to start with self-awareness, the beginning of all wisdom. It is the foundation of our personal and professional growth, and the beginning of happier and more fulfilled lives. Therefore, you are encouraged to create your personal profile as a member, start a self-discovery journey and track your personal development progress.
In this community, your value comes from the lessons you learned from the past, the actions you take today, and the intentions you hold for the future. Your place of origin, citizenship, race, gender, religion, age and social status do not affect your status in Teal Village. Instead, you are appreciated and respected for your integrity, kindness, competence and your contributions. Here, you are, first and foremost, a Human Being and that your primary goal on this planet is to learn, to grow and to contribute.
Along the way, you will be supported by coaches, mentors and the community. You will acquire deeper and deeper understandings about yourself and your true potential.
In addition to tracking your personal development progress, your personal profile allows you to share selected information with other members. This increases your chance to be invited for work opportunities as a Subject Matter Expert or project team member with specific skills or experience.
To begin, we recommend that you answer these following questions in one sitting under 45 minutes, based on stream of consciousness, without too much thinking. This gives you a quick overview of your current level of self-awareness. Please keep a copy of your first draft as a reference to compare with your future versions. This way, you can clearly see the progress of your personal development in the coming years. Even if you have little or no answers to these questions, do not worry. You will have plenty of resources, including coaches and the community, to help you discover yourself.
