During the afternoon, participants can experientially understand more about leadership by playing the KnowMe™ game with any number of groups of four to six -- with a debrief exercise after everyone is finished. This highly-interactive game is based on the Disclosure/Feedback model of awareness known as the Johari Window (click to view more about the game), named after Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham. This award-winning game has been used in over 20 countries by a wide range of organizations and is specifically designed for establishing trust and building relationships in the workplace.

It has been suggested that self-knowledge is a starting point for all great leaders. Behavior research also indicates the most effective people are those who understand themselves and others. The more one understands personal strengths and weaknesses coupled with the ability to identify and understand the strengths and weaknesses of others, the better one will be able to develop strategies to meet the demands of the organization.
