SITUATION AWARENESS – USAMA NADEEM (KBAM)
Situation awareness is about being aware of what is going around. It is the cause of many accidents that happen around us because people are not attentive and don’t observe things happening in their surroundings. There were also a lot of examples given during the session, regarding the situation awareness which showed that how people get into a lot of trouble just because of not being aware of the things happening around them. There are three stages of situation awareness which include gather, interpret and anticipate. They further include errors like memory error, incorrect mental model and anticipation errors etc. So, people don’t pick up the right information and try to come up with their own conclusions. Lot of information and stress can also affect the awareness.
So, the situation awareness is really important since people do human errors because of not being aware of things and fall into great trouble. It is important to be aware of your surroundings and as future leaders, we should try to be develop situation awareness because it is more important for leaders as they have to lead and it is also important for us to develop this into our people.
