Johari Window Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Johari Window
  • 2. • A Johari window is a psychological tool created by Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham in 1955 in the United States. Puspal
  • 3. • You can use it to help people understand and improve interpersonal communication and relationships. Puspal
  • 4. The Johari Window Concept and communication model helps improve understanding between individuals within a team or in a group setting. It can be used to improve a group's relationship with other groups. Puspal
  • 5. JOHARI . window Puspal
  • 6. Arena. What is known by the person about him/herself and also known by others. Examples: your name, the color of your hair, the fact you own a dog. Puspal
  • 7. Blind Spot. What is unknown by the person about him/herself but what others know. Examples: your own manners, the feelings of other persons about you. Facade. What the person knows about him/herself that others do not know. Such as: your secrets, your hopes, desires, what you like and what you dislike. Puspal
  • 8. . The Unknown. Traits unknown by the person about him/herself and also unknown by others. The unknown also has potential to influence the rest of the JW. Puspal
  • 9. In the beginning of a communication process, when you meet someone, the size of the ARENA quadrant is not very large, since there has been little time and opportunity to exchange information. The basis idea is to expand the Arena to become the dominant window. How? Through Self Disclosure and Feedback Solicitation. Puspal
  • 10. Or TEAM . Puspal
  • 11. Two key ideas behind the tool 1. Individuals can build trust between themselves by disclosing information about themselves; and 2. they can learn about themselves and come to terms with personal issues with the help of feedback from others. – Puspal
  • 12. Taking Feedback Once the ice is broken and your levels of confidence and self- esteem rises, it is easier to invite others to comment on your blind spots. Active and empathic listening skills are useful in this exercise. Puspal
  • 13. Usage of the Johari Window
  • 14. Applications Generally used for teaching and understanding: How individuals communicate with themselves and with others. How individuals present themselves to themselves and to others. How individuals perceive their place in the world. Puspal
  • 15. With a little consideration Johari is also suitable for multiple usage: Coaching to facilitate conversations around 'actions vs. perceived motivations'. As an Organizational Development tool to visualize the political and cultural issues that may be in or out of sync within a business. Puspal
  • 16. Strengths of the Johari Window
  • 17. Benefits Easy to grasp, flexible outcomes. The method catalyses open information sharing. The method will create a shared reference point. Puspal
  • 18. Limitations and Drawbacks of the Johari Window
  • 19. Disclosure Some things are perhaps better not communicated (your sexual behavior, mental health problems or large-scale failures). Some people may pass on the information they received further than you desire or use it in a negative way. Puspal
  • 20. Giving Feedback Some cultures have a very open and accepting approach to feedback. Others don’t. Exercise Caution. Some people take personal feedback offensively. Be sensitive, and start gradually. Puspal
  • 21. Assumptions of the Johari Window
