The Johari Window - Developing Your People Leader Toolkit

As a people leader it’s useful to have a strong toolkit of good frameworks; shortcuts for certain ways of operating. We get a lot of feedback from people about the resources we share and how helpful they are, so we’re sharing a new one with you: the Johari Window.  Episode Highlights: When was it developed, who developed it and what actually is the Johari Window?  Why was the Johari Window invented? The four quadrants of the Johari Window: Open Area, Blind Spot, Hidden Area and Unknown.  The open area refers to what you know about yourself that is also known by others in your team In a highly functioning team, you should try to be open, and to broaden and expand your ‘open area’ How we’ve used quadrant one when working with teams The importance of being fully present and leveraging your strengths as a team Quadrant two: the blind spot What you might not know about yourself that others do Being open to feedback from other team members Quadrant three: the hidden area What others don’t know about you and why it’s important to share what challenges you have or what you’re working on By knowing what challenges each member of your team (and yourself) has, you can better set people up for success Quadrant four: the unknown area Learning to open your eyes to the potential Do you have a talent for something that hasn’t been tested yet?  Has your team’s resilience been tested yet? Starting small as a people leader - do the first quadrant yourself Build your team up to be more open and give the Johari Window a go at your next team meeting Not only are you learning a new resource, but you’re building your team’s toolkit How the Johari Window can help your team develop and grow - giving them the ability to communicate their challenges clearly and concisely The two layers of the Johari Window for your team and your senior leadership team Useful Links: People Leaders Website - https://peopleleaders.com.au/People Leaders on LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/company/people-leaders-pty-ltd/?trk=cws-cpw-coname-0-0Jan Terkelsen on LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/janterkelsen/Michelle Terkelsen on LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/michelle-terkelsen-creating-high-performing-teams-a992744/People Leaders Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/PeopleLeaders/People Leaders Twitter - https://twitter.com/PeopleLeadersPeople Leaders Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/people.leaders  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
