What is self-awareness?

Self-awareness is the ‘keystone’ of emotional intelligence. But what does that actually mean?

In this chapter we’ll understand what self-awareness actually is and why it’s important to you as a business leader, and start to look at some key tools to develop your self-awareness.

Test your self-awareness

In this chapter we’ll continue to explore your self-awareness by looking at different reflection techniques and how these can help you, as well as completing a simple psychometric test to give you a greater understanding of your social styles.

Developing self-awareness

Feedback is the final tool we are going to explore within this module and it is central to identifying, understanding and revealing elements of yourself that you were perhaps not aware of.
