Johari Window

  1. 1. JOHARI WINDOW<br />A model for self-awareness, Personal development and <br />Understanding relationship<br />DHIRAJ<br />
  2. 2. All of us want….?<br />SUCCESS<br />HAPPINESS<br />
  3. 3. Can we have<br />Success and Happiness<br />without developing<br />Interpersonal Relations<br />and all other related skills ?<br />
  4. 4. As we grow up, we improve our skills at communicating our wants and needs, our feelings and thoughts, with our family members, to begin with, and the rest of the world, over a period of time. <br />
  5. 5. We also learn to interpret other people&apos;s wants and needs, feelings and thoughts, so that we are aware of how our behavior impacts on others. <br />
  6. 6. We find that people <br />with good interpersonal skills <br />get along well, <br />with people, and circumstances. <br />They connect with <br />other people effortlessly, <br />they seem to know <br />the right things to say and <br />they generally succeed in <br />whatever they do.<br />
  7. 7. Interestingly, we find that <br />interpersonal skills <br />are one of those things <br />that you&apos;ll only really notice <br />when someone <br />doesn&apos;t have them!<br />And, understandably, <br />if we are not good at these skills,<br />it is the others who first notice it.<br />
  8. 8. The good news is that<br />It is possible for everyone of us <br />to develop really effective <br />interpersonal skills. <br />The question is,<br />are we aware of the need, and if so,<br />are we interested and committed to<br />improving our skills, continuously ?<br />
  9. 9. A commitment <br />to spend a little time <br />working on improving <br />your interpersonal skills<br />will pay huge dividends, <br />throughout your future life. <br />Once again, <br />the question is,<br />are you ready, and if so,<br />when are you going to begin ?<br />
