Self Awareness

The first position for any sustainable change to occur, within an individual, is ‘self-awareness’.  Self-awareness occurs when the individual discovers a realisation as to the effect of their behaviour within specific situations and how this impacts on others.  When this degree of realisation occurs the individual begins to notice the outcome of their behaviour and their ability to ‘notice’ becomes enhanced.  The process of noticing enables us to create choices for ourselves, and the more choices we have the greater the likelihood is for us to achieve our personal and business goals.

Consequently, the skill of critical self evaluation needs to be developed, as well as a capability for openness and honesty when interacting with others.  Openness and honesty enables an individual to clearly communicate their position, relating to a specific situation, to others.  Additionally, demonstrating openness and honesty allows for others to feel comfortable in providing feedback, which is a vital component in developing self-awareness.  This concept is clearly demonstrated by Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham with their model of Johari Windows.

The development of ‘self-awareness’ is achieved through a combination of personality and psychometric instruments, experiential learning events and action learning methodologies.
