For Challenge Day 2 we will focus on seeking feedback. Surrounding yourself with peers and mentors who are willing to give you honest feedback will significantly impact your ability to be self-aware and enhance your self-understanding. We all have blind spots, and others are likely to identify things we normally don’t see in ourselves.
In this challenge we will be doing an activity that will help you gain feedback from your friends and family. Your challenge is to complete an online self-assessment based on the Johari Window, a psychological instrument used to demonstrate your knowledge of yourself in comparison to how others perceive you.
Here are the steps:
1. Complete your 1-minute self assessment using this link: http://kevan.org/johari
2. Email your unique link to a few friends and family. Ask them to complete the assessment about you. Tell them to be honest because this feedback will help you grow and giving helpful, constructive feedback is a sign of love for another person.
Day 2 Challenge Questions:
What is your reaction to this activity?
What did you learn about yourself with the help of your family and friends?
In what ways do you believe this connects back to leadership (or how you show up as a leader)?
