Building Self-Awareness with the Profile of Self

The Profile of Self is the key to higher engagement, stronger trust, and better results.

If there was one thing you could do to dramatically improve your leadership ability, what would it be?

Most people would identify a skill or capability, such as time management, delegating, or holding people more accountable.

In reality, almost nothing will have a greater impact on your ability to lead effectively than increasing your self-awareness.


Leaders who know who they are can be more intentional about what they do and how they do it. Intentional leaders:

  1. Are more engaged in their work
  2. Build more trust with others
  3. Are more productive

So how do you develop self-awareness? Where do you start?

In my 10 years of experience training and coaching leaders and professionals I have found that one of the best way to develop self-awareness is through creating a Profile of Self. The Profile is a tool to organize your self-knowledge in a way that makes it easy to articulate and share more about who you are with others.

Using the Profile, you can become clearer about who you are, why you do what you, what you do best, and where you thrive. You can learn and articulate what motivates you and plan your work in a way that engages your best self.

Here's what one participant said about developing his Profile of Self:

"I feel more in tune with my values, motivations, and strengths and who I want to be as a leader. I now have a better idea how to communicate with those I lead and those who lead me so that we can work together to effectively impact student achievement."

This course will guide you through developing your own Profile of Self. You'll get a four-page template with activities to help you become more self-aware as well as more than 2 hours of video content to guide you through the process.

NOTE: Additional video content will be added to this course every two weeks. You will be notified as new content is uploaded.
