The Conscious Competence Learning Model is an explanation of the stages in which we learn and develop a new skill. In this model,  LearnUnconscious Incompetence = You don’t know what you don’t know.

  • Conscious Incompetence = You know that you don’t know how to do something.
  • Conscious Competence = You know how to do something; it takes conscious effort.
  • Unconscious Competence = You know how to do something, and it is second nature; you rock at it. It’s “automatic”.
