What is self-knowledge?

Self-knowledge is a very elementary skill for managers. Self-knowledge means understanding oneself and knowing oneself. The effect of good self-knowledge is that those who can better assess themselves and manage themselves are more open to others. Therefore, it is crucial for established or aspiring leaders to train their own self-knowledge. Good self-knowledge makes it easier for them to deal with other personalities.

What is the key to self-knowledge?

A pronounced self-knowledge requires first and foremost an intensive examination of one’s own self. The effect on others, for example, is an important topic in this context. What attitudes, values or emotions do I convey with my gestures, facial expressions or statements? What behavioral patterns are typical of my own actions? But personal characteristics, strengths and one’s own limits are also part of self-knowledge.

How can self-knowledge be improved?

In a self-awareness leadership module for leadership professionals, one’s own self-awareness can be specifically promoted and trained. The learning objectives and the contents of the self-awareness module are precisely defined in the module descriptions of the Swiss Association for Leadership Development (SVF). The SVF offers a self-awareness module as part of its Leadership Certificate. Since its founding in the fall of 2000, the Swiss Association for Leadership Education has been committed to providing contemporary leadership training.

How is the Self-Knowledge Leadership Module for SVF leadership professionals structured?

The Self-Knowledge Leadership Module for SVF Leadership Professionals is part of the Leadership Certificate, which can be obtained from the Swiss Association for Leadership Education (SVF). In addition to the Self-Knowledge Module, it also includes modules on the topics of communication oral & written, conflict management, presentation, self-management and team or group leadership. The examination after completion of all modules consists of a written and an oral part. In the written examination, a four-hour case study must be completed. The oral exam consists of an interview that lasts approximately 90 minutes.

What is the SVF Self-Knowledge Report?

The goal of the Self-Knowledge module is the following: Graduates should then be able to critically examine themselves personally. If necessary, they should also be able to initiate corrective measures to change their own behavior. Evidence of these competencies is provided through a written report. The SVF Self-Knowledge Report focuses exclusively on the individual. The contents of the SVF Self-Knowledge Report include, among other things, self-reflection and lessons learned based on real-life examples.

How is the SVF self-knowledge report evaluated?

It is extremely important to the examiners that the connections between the practical examples and the resulting findings in the SVF Self-Knowledge Report are logically comprehensible. The SVF Self-Knowledge Report is reviewed by at least two experts, who ultimately determine the verdict jointly. The evaluation of the SVF Self-Knowledge Report is not done in grades, but with the ratings “passed” or “failed”. The length of the SVF Self-Knowledge Report must be at least four pages and at most six pages.
