Topic:  Pyramid and Windows: Achieving Optimum Performance Through Self-awareness

This interactive presentation introduces Maslow’s Hierarchy and Johari Window which are self-realization and self-actualization tools that can be used by leaders to improve motivation and moral within the workplace, while mitigative risk factors that could jeopardize a company’s legacy. 

 Attendees will be able to:

1. Gain self-awareness by using Maslow’s Hierarchy and Johari Window worksheets.

2. Will be able to identify internal and external barriers that prevent positive change from achieving optimum performance.

3. Learn and implement strategies to mitigate risks, identify resources, boost employee morale, and increase production.

4. Discover opportunities to reevaluate company policy and procedures to enhance optimum employee performance.

Pyramids and Windows: Achieving Optimum Performance Through Self-awareness, engages the audience to identify internal and external barriers to see beyond their current reality using worksheets and authentic discussions.  By doing so, this enables individuals to envision the endless opportunities to achieve their personal and professional goals.

Maslow’s Hierarchy addresses five categories of human needs starting with physiological, which is the base of the pyramid.  Each category or platform addresses a need that must be met for a person to find the motivation to move up the pyramid.   For leaders, having their employees reach the top of the pyramid on the self-actualization platform is where optimum personal and professional performance is achieved.

Johari Window is a psychosocial tool to help individuals become self-aware by looking into four aspects of their life (open, hidden, blind, and unknown).  If used properly, leaders can create a safe working environment to help their employees discover ways to bring issues out into the open so they can be dealt with appropriately. 

It is human nature for people to experience adversity and challenges such as domestic violence, a loss of a loved one, or health issues.  But it is through self-awareness and a safe environment that employees can develop healthy coping skills to build resilience and overcome those obstacles. 

Additionally, leaders will be able to help their employees recognize opportunities for personal and professional growth, which will enhance problem solving skills, creativity, and work/life balance.  Ultimately, this presentation will stimulate change by implementing self-awareness strategies to maximize each person’s potential and performance.  If leaders want to create effective change in the workplace, it should start at the top, because policies and procedures start at the Executive level.

This interactive presentation introduces Maslow’s Hierarchy and Johari Window, which are self-realization and self-actualization tools designed to help leaders improve motivation within the workplace.  Leaders will also be able to help their employees recognize opportunities for personal and professional growth, which will enhance problem solving skills, creativity, and work/life balance.
