The Johari Window is a technique used to assist individuals in further understanding their mental and physical relationships between themselves and others. It is used to enhance employee and team success in both self-help and community settings, as well as in the organizational world.
It was created in 1955 by American psychologists Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham, hence the name. Johari Window is commonly used in self-help groups in activities like heuristic exercises that help a person understand and explore information about them. The Johari Window is a self-discovery technique.
In general, it is assumed that our involvement in a society is determined by our perceptions of others. As a result, it is critical to cultivating an individual’s perspective to increase group coordination.
The Johari window model is based on two principles: gaining others’ confidence by sharing knowledge with them, and learning about yourself through input from others.
