|The Conscious Competency Ladder|
Noel Burch, an employee with Gordon Training International, developed the Conscious Competence Ladder in the 1970s. You can use it to manage your emotions during a potentially challenging learning process.The model has four learning levels:
- Unconsciously unskilled (Unconsciously Incompetent) – we don't know that we don't have this skill, or that we need to learn it.
- Consciously unskilled (Consciously Incompetent) – we know that we don't have this skill.
- Consciously skilled (Consciously Competent) – we know that we have this skill.
- Unconsciously skilled (Unconsciously Competent) – we don't know that we have this skill (it just seems easy).
