Finding the Leader in You: Self-Assessment / Johari Window


The Johari Window emphasizes that we may not be aware of everything that there is to know about ourselves. Others may know things about us that we just cannot see or are unwilling to admit. One way to improve our personal relationships is to increase what we know about ourselves and what others know about us. The following two (2) behaviors are key to improving personal and professional relationships:

Openness to Feedback we have to recognize that others see things in us that we may not be aware of and accept information they provide.

Willingness to Disclose we have to trust others enough to share personal information with them.

Grasping the realities of organizational behavior begins with an understanding one’s own personality and behavioral tendencies.
