Four Windows of the Organisation
A JoHari window is a cognitive psychological tool created by Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham 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 (this method is particularly used to rapidly come to a solution that is hoped to be close to the best possible answer, or ‘optimal solution’).
Charles Handy calls this concept the JoHari House with four rooms. Room 1 is the part of ourselves that we and others see. Room 2 is the aspect that others see but we are not aware of. Room 3 is the most mysterious room in that the unconscious or subconscious bit of us is seen by neither ourselves nor others. Room 4 is our private space, which we know but keep from others.
