JOHARI WINDOW: Do You Know How Others See You?


A powerful tool to increase knowledge about yourself and your personal effectiveness.


The person or people who supervise you and the employees who report to you . . . they all have an image, a feeling, and an opinion about you as a supervisor, an employee, and as a person.

One useful way of thinking about how other people see you and to become more aware of yourself and your behavior is to use a tool called The Johari Window.

This tool helps you to recognize and to remind you that there are :

•         things about yourself that you do and don’t know, but others do

•         things that people do and don’t know about you, but you know about yourself

•         things both you and others do not know about you
