Within this article, the author will be discussing the important issue of self-awareness and what this means for the support worker in everyday practice. What does being self-aware mean and how can it support the delivery of quality care? The concept of having emotional intelligence will be highlighted and the Johari Window will be discussed as a way to explore and develop personal self-awareness. Self-awareness is closely linked to reflective practice and this will also be explored, before looking at self-awareness for leadership. Clear links to the Code of Conduct for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers in England will be made throughout.
