This “Recognizing and Reducing Bias” lesson plan [PDF] explores our knowledge of self through the Johari’s Window. The lesson plan targets a seasonal audience, though it will be useful at all developmental levels.
At the end of the session trainees should be able to:
- Understand the concept of the Johari Window and how it can be used as a tool to improving our knowledge of self.
- Explain the benefits of shrinking our own blind spots and the hidden parts of ourselves in order to become more productive and effective.
- Identify next steps for recognizing their own agenda and reducing bias.
