What Is Self-Awareness & Why Is It Important?

At Leaders of Evolution, we specialise in personal development courses geared towards enhancing students’ self-awareness. Now you may be wondering, what is self-awareness? Self-awareness is one’s ability to acknowledge their strengths and their weaknesses through self-reflection and introspection.

What Are Self-Awareness Courses?

To display self-awareness one must make a constant effort to monitor their thoughts, emotions, and beliefs and how their actions may or may not reflect upon them. Our e-learning programs focus heavily on students’ ability to set goals and to do what needs to be done to accomplish them. We help students and teachers gain the knowledge to confidently answer the question: what is self-awareness?

Becoming a Smart Learner

The future of the workforce is extremely unpredictable. What we do know is that jobs will make the shift from routine manual tasks to a stronger focus on people and problem-solving. That is why our personal development courses teach students what it means to be a smart learner and what self-awareness is. Our e-learning programs teach students that a smart learner is one who is able to learn quickly and is always enthusiastic to gain more knowledge. A smart learner is also a smart thinker and a smart doer.

At Leaders of Evolution, we define a smart thinker as one who thinks creatively, loves to solve problems, and displays good interpersonal skills. A smart doer is one who is able to complete a given task with minimal instruction and supervision. Each of these traits is essential in achieving success in any given workforce. 

What is Self-Awareness in Relation to Our 4 C’s Learning Framework?

Each of our personal development courses are geared towards enhancing students across the 4 C’s – Competence, Confidence, Character, and Connectedness. At Leaders of Evolution, our e-learning programs specialise in equipping your students with the life skills needed to be successful. The ability to display self-awareness goes hand-in-hand with our unique learning framework. 

Competence

Relates to the skills the learner is developing whether they be technical (what) or tactical (how) and is intrinsically linked to performance outcomes. A competent student is one who knows what and how things need to be done in order to achieve success. They are able to ask themselves tough questions like, “what is self-awareness and how can I achieve it?”

Confidence

Relates to the development of positive self-worth and recognition that the learner can use the knowledge gained to influence themselves and others. At Leaders of Evolution, we believe a confident student is one who is able to award themselves for all they have accomplished while still remaining eager to grow. Confidence plays an important role in self-awareness as it is vital to properly display this newfound ability.

Character

Relates to how the learner develops a sense of self-awareness and behaviours such as empathy, integrity and responsibility within the communities they apply their learning. These behaviours ensure that students are growing from the personal development courses that they are engaging with. One with good character is able to answer the question, “what is self-awareness?” and acknowledge how they have achieved it and can continue to do so. 

Connectedness

Relates to how the learner is able to establish and foster positive working relationships within the environments they apply their learning. A student who displays connectedness is able to challenge the question “what is self-awareness” in both themself and their peers.
