Your Task
To complete an Individual Self Analysis Journal based on the completion of several selfanalysis tools and surveys.
Assessment Description
Based on the topics covered in Weeks 1-4, you will create an Individual Self Analysis Journal
based on the completion of two evaluative surveys and getting others to complete two
evaluative surveys on you. You will then use the Johari Window Model of Self-Awareness to
discuss the results.
Assessment Instructions
1. Complete a self-assessment through the Global Leadership Foundation’s Global
Emotional Intelligence Test (GEIT) here:
https://globalleadershipfoundation.com/geit/eitest.html and complete Daniel Goleman’s EQ
Instrument from this free online link
: https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/ei-quiz.htm
2. Contact two people who know you reasonably well (e.g. work colleagues, close friends,
family members). Provide them with the link or hard-copy version of the same two survey
instruments and request that they complete the survey as an assessment of you and email
their survey results to you once completed.
3. Using the Johari Window Model of Self-Awareness, critically analyse your own findings and
those of your associates to reflect on what you have learned about yourself. W rite a 1200-
word reflective essay (+/- 10%-word count) based on the assessment results you have
gathered. Discuss key areas of strengths and areas for improvement. Review major
differences between your self- assessment and those that you received from your chosen
two associates.

4. Your Individual Self Analysis Journal should include the following three (3) sections:
Critically compare your results with those of the two people who evaluated you.
In your analysis, use the four quadrants of the Johari Window; i.e. Open, Blind,
Hidden, Unknown (approx. 400 words).
Analyse your strengths and weaknesses based on your own survey results
(approx. 300 words).
Reflect on what competencies you would like to develop in order to function well as a global
citizen. Provide practical examples with the assumption you work in a culturally diverse
global organisation (approx. 400 words).
Your Individual Self-Analysis Journal requires a significant amount of analysis and
personal reflection and should be written in the first person. It should include:
Integration of these reflections with theoretical concepts.
A brief discussion of identified strengths and areas for development, presenting your own
results, your associates’ results, and a discussion of the patterns, similarities/differences
and trends you discover.
Evidence of integration of feedback received from your associates, as well as
consideration of your own past experiences and feedback from other sources you have
received in years gone by.
A clear conclusion reflecting on how your new insights may assist you with a potential
career in a culturally diverse organisation.
A reference list
An Appendix with proof of completed surveys, both yours and your associates’
Please note that the evidence of the tests is worth 6/30. Further guidance
will be available during the trimester
You should consider the Johari Window model by breaking down its four parts
and reflecting on how the various quadrants provide a deeper understanding of
yourself
Please refer to the Assessment Marking Guide to assist you in completing all the assessment criteria.
