Your
Task

Write a reflective essay after:

Use
the Johari Window to discuss the
results

Using
the Johari Window
model for
self-awareness,
critically analyse your own
findings and
those of your
associates to
reflect on what
you have
learned about
yourself. Write
a 1,500-word
reflective essay
based on the assessment results you
have
gathered.
Discuss key areas of
strengths and areas for
improvement.
In particular, review
major differences between
your self-
assessment and
those that you
received from
your
chosen two
associates.

In
addition
to
an
introduction
(approx.200 words)
and
conclusion
(approx. 200 words).,
the
reflective
essay
should
comprise three
main
sections:

In Part 1, critically compare your results with those of the
two people who evaluated you. In your analysis,
use the four quadrants of the Johari W indow; i.e. Open, Blind,
Hidden, Unknown (approx. 400 words).

In Part 2, analyse your strengths and weaknesses based on your
own survey results (approx. 300
words).

In Part 3, reflect on what competencies you would like to
develop in order to function well as a global
citizen. Provide practical
examples with the assumption you work in a culturally diverse global
organisation (approx. 400 words).

Your reflective essay should include:

Integration
of these reflections with
theoretical
concepts.

A
reflective essay can be entirely written in the first
person.

A
brief
discussion of
identified strengths and areas for
development,
presenting your
own
results, your
associates’
results, and a discussion of the patterns, similarities/differences
and trends you
discover.

Evidence
of integration of feedback received from your
associates, as
well
as
consideration of your
own past
experiences and feedback from other sources you
have
received in
years gone
by.

A
clear
conclusion reflecting
on how your
new insights
may
assist you
with
a potential
career in a culturally diverse
organisation.

A
reference
list (over
10 sources)

Further
guidance:

This
paper requires
a significant amount of analysis and personal
reflection.

This means that you should consider the Johari W indow model by
breaking down its four parts and reflecting on how the various
quadrants provide a deeper understanding of yourself.

You
need to work on your emotional intelligence. You may find that
you feel overwhelmed by your emotions, especially in stressful
situations; or, you may avoid conflict because you think that
you’ll find it distressing.
It’s
likely, too, that you find it hard to calm down after you’ve felt
upset, and you may struggle to build strong working
relationships.
Don’t
worry – there are plenty of ways that you can build emotional
intelligence, starting now. Read our tips below to
find out more.

35-55

Your
emotional intelligence level is… OK.
You
probably have good relationships with some of your colleagues,
but others may be more difficult to work with.
The
good news is that you have a great opportunity to improve your
working relationships significantly. Read
more below to
boost your EI still further.

56-75

Great!
You’re an emotionally intelligent person. You have great
relationships, and you probably find that people approach you for
advice.
However,
when so many people admire your people skills, it’s easy to lose
sight of your own needs. Read our tips below to
find out how you can continue to build your EI.
Researchers have
found that emotionally intelligent people often have great
leadership potential. Realize this potential by seeking
opportunities to improve even further.

Characteristics
of Emotional Intelligence

Psychologist Daniel
Goleman identified
five elements that make up emotional intelligence. These are:

Self-awareness.

Self-regulation.

Motivation.

Empathy.

Social
skills.

Let’s
look at how you can develop good skills in each area.

Self-Awareness

(Questions
1, 8, 11)

Your
score is 12 out
of 15

In
his 1995 book “Emotional
Intelligence: Why it can Matter More Than IQ,”
Goleman explained that people with high self-awareness are “aware
of their moods as they are having them.”

To
increase self-awareness ,
learn about mindfulness .
This involves focusing on the present moment – including how you’re
feeling. And keep a journal  in
which you write about and analyze the emotional situations you
experience from day to day.

You
also need to understand your strengths and weaknesses to build
self-awareness. Do a personal
SWOT analysis ,
and ask
for feedback  from
your boss, friends, and trusted colleagues to find out how you can
improve further.

Self-Regulation

(Questions
2, 4, 7)

Your
score is 10 out
of 15

Self-regulation
is about staying in control. To develop your skills in this area,
learn how to manage
your emotions  effectively.

If
you often get angry ,
note what triggers this feeling, and think about why this happens.
Use techniques such as deep
breathing  to
calm yourself down, and give yourself time to pause before you
respond to emails or requests, so that you don’t say something that
you’ll later regret. (See our article on anger
management  to
learn more about this.)

You
may also be affected by other negative feelings and emotions, such
as anxiety  and stress .
So, do what you can to manage these feelings effectively.

Accountability  is
another important element of self-regulation. Take responsibility for
your actions and behaviors, and make sure that these align with
your values .

Motivation

(Questions
6, 10, 12)

Your
score is 12 out
of 15

Self-motivation
is strongly affected by your emotions. When you’re distracted by your
emotions, you may find it hard to see tasks through.

Boost
your motivation levels  by
developing self-discipline ,
and by looking for and celebrating small
wins  –
simple jobs that, when you’ve completed them, give you a sense of
achievement.

Also,
set yourself longer-term goals .
When you decide what you want to achieve, you’ll focus on what really
matters to you. This can be highly motivating, especially when you
connect personal goals with career-related ones.

If
you’re still struggling to get motivated in your current role, take
some time to rediscover
your purpose .

Empathy

(Questions
3, 13, 15)

Your
score is 14 out
of 15

Empathy
is the ability to recognize other people’s emotions and understand
their perspectives. Goleman calls this aspect of EI “the
fundamental people skill.”

To
develop empathy ,
start by simply thinking about other people’s viewpoints. Imagine how
they may be feeling, and use active
listening skills  to
understand them fully when they express their emotions to you.

Try
not to interrupt or talk about your own feelings during the
conversation. Look at their body
language ,
too: it can tell you a lot about their emotions. If you watch
and listen to others, you’ll quickly become attuned to how they feel.
(The Perceptual
Positions  technique
can give you a particularly sharp insight into what other people may
be thinking and feeling.)

Tip:

If
you’re a leader, read our article “What’s Empathy Got to do With
it?” for tips on using empathy in leadership.

Social
Skills

(Questions
5, 9, 14)

Your
score is 4 out
of 15

Even
if you’re not a natural “people person,” it is possible to
develop better social skills.

Start
by taking our quiz  to
see which communication skills you need to improve on. Then, find out
how you can develop
trust  and rapport  with
people – this is an essential part of building good
working relationships .

Don’t
shy away from negative situations, either. Learn how to deal
with conflict  and
other difficult situations effectively.

If
you’re uncomfortable with social situations, work on
building self-confidence .
Start slowly, but then look for opportunities to practice your skills
with bigger groups. For example, you could offer to attend
conferences on behalf of your team.

Key
Points

Developing
high emotional intelligence (or EI) is incredibly important for a
successful career. When we have high levels of emotional
intelligence, we’re able to build strong working relationships and
manage difficult situations more effectively.

Influential
psychologist Daniel Goleman developed a framework of five elements
that define emotional intelligence:

Self-awareness.

Self-regulation.

Motivation.

Empathy.

Social
skills.

Even
if you already have many of the elements of emotional intelligence,
it’s important to look for opportunities to build it further. This
will increase your leadership potential, and improve the quality of
your relationships.
