Before we can find our “why” or discover our passions or define our purpose in life, we must begin the journey of self-discovery by asking ourselves the age-old question “who am I?” By clearly articulating a sense of self and identity, we can only then begin the delve into our development as individuals or as leaders. Defining a true sense of self while understanding and identifying the things that shape us, leads to an overwhelming sense of confidence and clarity. Confidence in knowing who we truly are, as well as the confidence to know who we are NOT.
What Will I Learn?
This session will delve into the factors that shape and influence our identity, both internally and externally, uncovering things about ourselves we often overlook. By understanding the importance of our personal definition of who we are, beyond social media personas and societal constructs, participants will learn how to take charge of how they view themselves and what they represent to others. With a clearly defined identity statement, participants will begin the journey of understanding the link between identity and confidence and how this results in greater clarity of thoughts, words, and actions. Identity. Confidence. Clarity. The beginning of a journey towards a life fueled by passion and driven by purpose.
Who Should Attend?
Those who are seeking to develop a personal identity statement to better understand their strengths and abilities and how this is the foundation towards greater confidence and clarity of mission and purpose.
Business owners and budding entrepreneurs who are in the early stages of creating a vision or mission statement for their business.
Existing business owners looking to re-invent themselves or their ideas to meet new trends and emerging innovations.
