This model was designed by two psychologists Joseph Luft and Harry Ingram to illustrate the importance for sharing information and giving feedback as a way of increasing understanding and trust. It’s a brilliant tool that has stood the test of time and great for using on any subject where there is a mental block.
Feel free to request the templates firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Familiarise self with the four windows
2. Consider how open you are to receiving feedback and sharing information?
