This session will last two hours and it is hoped that you will leave with an expanded knowledge of self awareness.

Restrooms are located at [location] and there are refreshments available [location]. Extra pencils are available here at the table if necessary.

Use this information to help you as the facilitator to determine the pace and level of detail as you go through the session. If all participants are familiar with the concept, spend more time on application.

Introduce Your Leadership Competency Model (if your company has a model) If your company has a leadership competency model we recommend you include it as a handout and/or insert as a slide before the agenda slide. Discuss how this two hour session fits into the model. Highlight which competency this learning will help develop within the model. This product is specifically developed to build leadership skills and knowledge and can be aligned to your company's leadership competency model. Discuss Leadership Development (if your company does NOT have a leadership competency model) If you don't have a leadership model make sure you emphasize --. In the two hour session, we will concentrate on one area within the competency of "the power of self awareness" as a leader. Our company recognizes that business strategy skills and knowledge are critical to success as a leader. This session is based on the Johari Window principles of self awareness. There are many other competencies (knowledge and skills) you will need to be a successful leader. (Discuss how participants can increase their competencies in other areas) Note to facilitator: TrainingMade products address all the leadership competencies needed to be a successful leader. Please view our website to preview all the products available to support developing leadership competencies. www.trainingmade.com SAY

This is a list of the topic areas we will cover today. We will start with an introduction to the Johari Window, and the key to using the Johari Window. We will then explore the Johari Profiles, taking multiple opportunities for you to apply the profiles to yourself, your business, department and/or group.

If you want to work with me, you should know...

· · In pairs: What are 1 or 2 things everyone should know about you in order to work effectively with you? For example: Your optimal/worst time of day, what grammar or spelling mistake drives you bananas, what nickname you hate, etiquette, etc. Be prepared to give some examples of the value of knowing this.

ACTIVITY 1.Pair up around the room. 2.In turn, tell the other person "What are 1 or 2 things everyone should know about you in order to work effectively with you." 3.Briefly discuss the value of knowing these simple things.

3. Share what you've learned from the group about your career. Debrief Although these insights were probably not earth-shattering (although people have quit organizations over issues like this): · What is the impact on leaders if others withhold information? · What is the long term impact on the effectiveness of the group or organization if people do not feel they can trust sharing information?

SAY

In 1955 a pair of American psychologists, Joseph Luft and Harry Ingram conceived a simple but powerful model for exploring two of the most basic sources of relevant information that underlie our ability to communicate with effectiveness and, by extension, our ability to effectively coordinate action with others as leaders and professionals in organizations. These sources of information give us insight into the way we present ourselves and interact with others in the world, allowing us to adapt our thinking and to choose our behavior when we communicate with others in a wide variety of circumstances. The two sources of information that serve as an underpinning for the Johari (named after the creators) communication model or Window are: ourselves and others. The four panes indicated here represent: The Open Area or the Arena: This presents the perspective that is well known to you and others. There is great power here as a leader or professional. People tend to trust and establish effective relationships as well as communicate easily with those who are self disclosing and open to feedback. The Hidden aspect of self or Façade: This is the perspective where we choose, consciously or unconsciously, to hide or avoid revealing things we know about ourselves. We all have aspects we choose to hide, out of fear or deception or simply as part of our private selves. The problem here is that some hidden aspects can cause serious communication obstacles and can consume distracting amounts of energy. The Great Unknown: This is the often vast area of ourselves which is not known to us or to others. Here lies the fathomable and unfathomable darkness of the unconscious filled with the dragons and butterflies of history, values, fears, opinions and beliefs that often surreptitiously guide behavior. The Blind Spot: Perhaps the area of highest potential for self -awareness, the blind spot represents those aspects of ourselves hidden to us but known to others. Colleagues, bosses, friends, and family often hold perspectives of us and our behavior that can provide valuable feedback for self awareness--IF we are open to the feedback.
