The Johari Window model is a simple and useful tool for illustrating and improving self-awareness, and mutual understanding between individuals within a group. This model can also be used to assess and improve a group's relationship with other groups. Today the Johari Window model is especially relevant due to modern emphasis on, and influence of, 'soft' skills, behaviour, empathy, cooperation, inter-group development and interpersonal development. Over the years, alternative terminology has been developed and adapted by different people - particularly leading to different descriptions of the four regions, hence the use of different terms in this explanation. Don't let it all confuse you - the Johari Window model is really very simple indeed.

Once everyone has finished their own self-assessment, the entire team will evaluate their colleagues. Assess your teammates with the same criteria you evaluated yourself. Remember to choose only 5 and to be both honest and objective. Instruct them to compare notes between self and team assessment. Ask an individual to disclose by talking about one of the adjectives they selected for themselves, but the group did not.
Have the individual select one of the adjectives the group has identified, but the individual did not. The group now has the opportunity to give some feedback to the individual about this adjective.
