A Personal Brand has 3 parts
Alignment is Critical
Axioms
What you believe
in
Assumptions
What people
think you
believe in
Actions
How you
behave
When not in unison you will be
viewed as unpredictable and even
the good you do may be seen as
manipulative
When in harmony, if people have
favourable assumptions about your
intentions even serious mistakes are
more easily forgiven
These 3 parts will be explored extensively in this
workshop

Brand Is Not Who You Say It Is:
It Is What They Say It Is
Let’s explore the Johari window to
better understand our relationship with
self and others and the impact on our
personal brand.
The Johari House has four rooms:
1. The part of ourselves that we see
and other’s see
2. The aspects that others see but
we are not aware of
3. The most mysterious room is
where the unconscious or
subconscious part of us is seen by
neither ourselves nor others
4. Our private space, which we know
but keep from others.

Exercise 2: Individual Exercise
Pick 5 or 6 adjectives from the list (next slide) and then choose 5 to 6 that your peers
would choose to describe you.
Place into the Open or Arena Quadrant. This quadrant represents traits of the
subjects that both you and your peers recognise
Same Adjectives
Selected only by
you
Place into the Hidden or Façade quadrant. This represents information
about you your peers are unaware of. It is then up to you to disclose this
information or not.
Selected only by
your peers
Unselected
adjectives
Place into the Blind Spot quadrant adjectives that are selected only by
Your peers.
This represents information that you are not aware of, but others
are.
Place into the Unknown quadrant. These behaviours or
motives are not recognised. One facet of interest in this area
Is our human potential.
Our potential is unknown to us, and others.
