The Self-Awareness Compass Quiz



If you’ve already read THE SELF-AWARENESS SUPERHIGHWAY’, you’ll know that you can’t decide if you are a self-aware leader without help from others. You can certainly decide to be a self-aware leader on your own, but in deciding whether you are one, that takes a little help from your friends… and colleagues!

To help you do that, the Quiz has two parts.

PART ONE:  The first part is your self-assessment. You will be asked to assess yourself against each of the nine CHARTABLE compass points. Each point will have a statement you will rate yourself against, e.g. I am caring, I am humble, I am authentic. You will be asked to rate yourself on a nine-point Likert scale, where one is ‘most in disagreement’ and nine is ‘most in agreement’.

PART TWO: The second part is your ‘others’ assessment.  Add email addresses for up to three people who you would like to rate you. Your raters will receive an email asking them to rate you against the same nine CHARTABLE compass points, on the same nine-point Likert scale, in response to the statements ‘[Your name] is caring, [Your name] is humble, [Your name] is trustworthy’,etc.

Your other-raters will have a seven-day window to complete the quiz. At the end of the seven days, the quiz will close and you will be able to access your report identifying your scores.

Your scores will be made up of your self-ratings and the average of the scores given by your three raters to ensure they can’t be identified.

Once you receive your scores on your map, you can decide what you want to do next and in what direction you want to travel.
