Growth Strategy #13: Johari's Window

Good for: Understanding blind spots and encouraging you to seek constructive feedback from others

Best completed by: You

Johari's window is a tool that can be used to help you understand your own personal blind spots 😎. It is a way of looking at how much self-awareness you have, 🤔 and how much knowledge you have about yourself. The model is named after Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham, who developed the concept in the 1950s.

The tool is based on the idea that there are four quadrants of information.

  1. The first two quadrants are things that you are aware of and that others are aware of.

2. The second two quadrants are things that you are not aware of, but that others are aware of. This can be represented as a diagram with four quadrants.

Quadrant 1 is "Open" and represents information that both you and others are aware of. This is information that you are comfortable sharing, and that others can see.

Quadrant 2 is "Secret" and represents information that you are aware of, but that others are not. This might be something that you are not comfortable sharing, or that you keep to yourself.

Quadrant 3 is "Unknown" and represents information that neither you nor others are aware of. This might be something that you are not aware of about yourself, or that others are not aware of about you.

Quadrant 4 is "Hidden" and represents information that others are aware of, but that you are not. This might be something that you are not comfortable sharing, or that you keep to yourself.

The goal of Johari's window is to help you move information from the unknown and hidden quadrants into the open quadrant. This can be done by increasing your self-awareness, and by sharing information with others. This can help you to understand your own Blindspots, and to grow as a person.

Have a great week!
