The real connection between impression management and personal branding is self-awareness. We need to learn how to become self-aware and maintain a level of self-awareness, even when everything around us is changing.

On the other hand, when I present myself in an inauthentic and non-credible manner, I’m likely to undermine health, relationships, and performance.

In addition, ethical decision-making is a process that encompasses a great use of self-awareness and critical thinking by the practitioner. Therefore, there should be a series of steps that a social worker must take in order to resolve or intent to resolve such a dilemma. I believe that the first step should be recognizing what the ethical dilemma is. Second, the practitioner should be self-aware of how professional values, rather than personal, may interfere with the decision-making process. Lastly, the social worker must consider the structural, cultural, and agency context issues surrounding the presenting ethical dilemma.
