Facilitating change session was a well a packaged presentation. With change management being part of our lives as we experience multiple changes in our careers and personal lives.
The group shared important information on how to facilitate change in our lives, I was happy to learn about the Johari Window which touches on a technique which assists in understanding oneself and other better. It focuses on the four quadrants of self which are Open, Blind , Hidden and Unknown.
1. Open – This is information about the person his attitudes, behavior, emotions, feelings, skills and views will be known by the person as well as by others.
2. Blind – Information about yourselves that others know in a group but you will be unaware of it.
3. Hidden – Information that is known to you but will be kept unknown from others.
4. Unknown – The Information which are unaware to yourselves as well as others. This includes the information, feelings, capabilities, talents.
My personal take home is understanding how the techniques in the Johari window can be utilized to facilitate changes in various areas of our lives by understanding where we are in relation to others and thereby affect the manner in which one communicates. These are tools I will use both in a professional and personal settings of my life.
