The Johari Window has been floating around out there in blogland for awhile and it’s time to me to get with it.
From Wikipedia: A Johari window is a metaphorical tool intended to help people better understand their interpersonal communication and relationships. It is used primarily in self-help groups and corporate settings as a heuristic exercise. Terms selected only by the participant, but not by any of their peers, are placed into the Façade quadrant, representing information about the participant of which their peers are unaware. It is then up to the participant whether or not to disclose this information.
Don’t you love that self-help groups and corporate settings are used interchangably in the definition?
