What you will learn:

We have all experienced times when we have shown up as the best versions of ourselves. Are we aware of these moments, and are we able to bring our Best Self with us even in the most challenging situations? As leaders, are we in turn able to create an environment of psychological safety that allows others to bring their best selves forward as well?

In this 2-hour session we will explore the concept of the Best Self and practice story sharing to discover our own keys to being extraordinary. We will guide participants into discovering their unique sense of purpose and ways to connect authentically with others.

We will work on the following concepts and skills:
- Framing the concept of the Best Self
- Recalling and sharing a Best Self Moment
- Levels of relating (transactional-congeneal-operational-authentic)
- Mindful listening practices
- Demonstrating understanding and inquiry skills
- Discovering personal purpose
