Abstract

This paper presents a self-directed model for development that conceptualises self-development as a two broad phased process. The first phase relates to actions associated with managerial self-understanding and the second phase concerns actions associated with self-change. Underpinning the operation of the model is a set of meta-skills – skills required for the development of other skills – managing self-awareness reactions, self-reflection practice and self-management. It is argued that the intrapersonal skills of managers should incorporate the skills these three meta-skills as they form the foundation for continuous adjustment of behaviour and skills to dynamic complex environments.
