Self-awareness is an honest understanding of your own values, principles, desires, goals and ambitions, emotional responses, strengths and weaknesses, and effect on others. It takes years to fully develop and requires commitment, hard work and the ability to adapt when needed. Once practiced regularly, self-awareness enables you to manage your behavior, improve your relationship with others and get you on the right path to leading people.

As we close this module you should have a clear understanding of the following and the ability to set goals and targets for yourself and begin to work on your personal growth and career development path

  • Identifying your needs, and laying down some initial broad ideas.
  • Identify who you are and who you’d like to become.
  • Discover your strengths and what is important to you.
  • An insight into your blueprint.
  • A general understanding of the seven habits of effective people.
  • The decision to change is in a proactive manner.



Managing all the above


Taking a step back from any situation, you gain a new understanding. After a while you get to see a better picture rather than just a piece of the puzzle. When you reflect, you can begin to clearly see what’s working and what is not. Reflecting this way allows you to make better decisions and change your actions.  So how do you reflect?   Think of Sherlock Holmes. When he looks at a situation and tries to solve something, he first takes a step back, removes himself from the scene of the investigation entirely, and in time, by gives  himself a day or so to reflect on the events. The technique is an important one to remember whenever you try to form a broad picture of something or gain perspective on a choice, however specific it may be.
