The Power Skills Project is a free podcast from Assemble You.

You may not have heard the term Power Skills before, but you’ve probably heard of soft skills.

We think Power Skills better acknowledges the importance and impact of things like leadership, resilience, productivity, and communication. The transferable superpowers that are some of the most valuable skills you can develop.

We’re all works in progress, and we want to improve ourselves and share our improvements with you - that’s why we chose to call this the Power Skills Project.

Every week, we discuss essential skills like active listening, motivating people, confidence, curiosity or dealing with change. We interview experts and practitioners across a myriad of industries and share their stories and learn from their experiences.

We'd love for you to drop by and listen in!

    Self Awareness with Jit Ramesh

    Self Awareness with Jit Ramesh

    In this episode of the Power Skills Project, Adam is joined by Jit Ramesh to discuss the very important topic of self-awareness.

    Jit is currently involved in a number of different projects aimed at creating conscious culture. Born in India and raised in Italy, Jit graduated top of his class from the University of Oxford after studying Materials Science and doing a research stint at MIT.

    During this time, he began to notice something was amiss. He realised that life and work felt stressful, not because there was too much to handle, but because he was not equipped to handle his own thoughts and emotions.

    So he began training as a psychotherapist and deeply explored meditative practices, even travelling around India for several months in search of better answers. 

    In this episode, Jit walks Adam through his own journey to self-awareness, why self-awareness is so important, how to support others in becoming more self-aware, and how to develop your own self-awareness.

    This is one of those episodes that really does cover a power skill. We hope you enjoy it!
