Today I found myself talking about my research and I thought maybe I’d share a few things I’ve discovered and developed over the last 4 years with you ….

My area of interest is self awareness, leader effectiveness and leadership at all levels

I’ve developed a three layer model of self-awareness and it goes like this:

*Internal self-awareness –
An ability to recognise and reflect on the self’s changing thoughts, feelings, beliefs, values, strengths and abilities through reflection and introspection

*Internal-social self-awareness – An ability to recognise how the self is viewed and perceived by others

*External-social self-awareness –
An ability to read and understand the emotions and intentions of others, recognising the self’s impact on others and responding and acting wisely in social exchanges

If you’d like to use/quote this model, please drop me a line at
