Competencies of Self-Awareness

 Competencies of Self-Awareness

According to Goleman (2016:16) there are three compentencies of self-awareness:

a.         Emotional Self-Awareness

        Emotional Self-Awareness is know  own emotions and recognizing their impact. Emotional awareness is an ability to recognise your own emotions, and their effects. Understand between their emotions and their thoughts and actions, including what they say; Understand how their feelings will therefore affect their performance; and be guided in how they feel by their personal values.

        Being aware of emotions, and how the affect to behaviour, is crucial to effective interaction with others. But it can also be crucial to your personal health and well-being.people can find self-analysis of their emotions difficult, especially if they have suppressed them for a long time. It may be hard for people to accurately recognise their emotions and even more difficult to understand why they are feeling them.However, self-analysis is a vital skill to learn and develop for good emotional intelligence.

        A good starting point is to be aware of the values, which can also be thought of as the personal ‘moral compass’. For more about this, see our page on Developing th Moral Compass. These values have an emotional value to us, which therefore means that many emotional responses come from some action or event that touches on those values. If we are aware of our values, we can quickly see why we may have had a particularly emotional reaction to an event or person. Most importantly, we can then take action to address the issue, with a better understanding of the problem.

b.    Accurate Self-Assessment

        Accurate self-assessment is knowing one’s strengths and limits.Understanding our own and others’ emotions also requires a good understanding of our personal strengths, weaknesses, inner resources and, perhaps most importantly, our limits. It can be particularly hard to admit to weaknesses and limits, especially if we are in a competitive and fast-moving work environment, but it is crucial for emotional intelligence and our own well-being.

          People who are good at self-assessment generally not only have a good understanding of their strengths and weaknesses, they show a good sense of humour about themselves and their limitations. They are usually very reflective, learning from experience, and also open to feedback.

c.    Self-Confidence

The final area of self-awareness is self-confidence. Self-confidence is having a sound sense of one’s self- worth and capabilities, having a strong sense of own self-worth, and not relying on others for our valuation of ourselves. People with good self-confidence are generally able to present themselves well, and are often described as charismatic.

Objective  self-awareness  is  described  as  the  process  in  which  the  self  directs  its  attention  inward  whereas subjective  self-awareness  is  when  attention  is  directed away  from  the  self.   Self-confidence is absolutely vital for job performance. Without the ability to ‘tell it like it is’ when necessary, and to stand up for unpopular positions, it is very hard to achieve anything, especially during tough times.
