5.3.1 What Have I Learned about My Qualities?

Do you remember what it was like to write about your most important qualities? We wondered at the time whether your qualities included some aspects that you might find difficult to include. We hope that your work in this course has given you a clearer idea about your qualities and that you have now have a much clearer and much more positive picture. They could include qualities such as integrity and honesty, and they may link to some of your values—values that, perhaps, inform your vision and your action plan.

You should see your improved awareness of your qualities as a valuable resource that will come in useful in situations ranging from personal relationships to job interviews. They should also underpin your plans for change. You will change as a result of being aware of your qualities and, as you do, other people will notice these changes. This will cause them to react differerntly to you which will, in turn, lead to further change (and learning) on your part.

Activity 5.6: What Have I Learned about My Qualities?

Timing: Allow about 20 minutes for this activity.

This is a required activity for Challenge 7: The Qualities, Knowledge, and Skills Audit Challenge (Part 2).

The first part of the Qualities, Knowledge, and Skills Audit Challenge (Part 2) involves spending a few moments thinking about your learning during this course.

Look back at the five qualities that you identified as being most important in the Qualities, Knowledge, and Skills Audit Challenge (Part 1). Do you still think that these are the most important ones? Or do you want to change or add to your list?
