Johari window refers to a technique that is used to help people in better understanding of themselves and others. It represents a feedback model used in self-help groups and corporate environment to improve individual and team performance.
In the Johari window method, participants are given a list of 56 adjectives with the task to choose five or six they feel best describe their personality. Colleagues are asked to do the same for the participant.
The answers are then mapped onto a grid of four different boxes. Once the grid is mapped, both the participant and the other contributors are given the opportunity to inform each other of the adjectives that only they selected.
