(Unleashed Comes in 2 Variations, Which May Be Combined for a Mixed Audience)
Variation 1 of 2: For Anyone Needing to Unleash Their Inner Giant
Do you sometimes hold back your genius, your ideas and creativity, or your ability to take the lead? Are you afraid of stepping on toes, disrupting, or being labeled? Did you know that your own timidity, false humility, biases against yourself, and self-inflicted limitations are 90% of the battle, approximately 5% is about learning to have balanced self-awareness, while the final 5% lies in teaching others the real meaning of inclusion and belonging. If we don't confront these limitations, process them, and learn stategies to tackle those difficult conversations, we will never be able to show up FULLY as ourselves. When minimizing our presence, we are not only robbing ourselves, but research shows that companies' suffer 'shrinkage' because of this delimma, and we know shrinkage impacts the bottom line.
We will do a few activities that will help us begin to explore our fears in a fun and interactive way. We will capture the subconscious shackles and take them off one-by-one. We will practice verbal and body language techniques to empower our presence. We will flex our career muscles and identify where we've been holding back and how we can become a stronger contributor.
Objectives: 1) Learn exercises to capture and replace negative self-talk. 2) Understand exactly what we're afraid of and bring those fears into right perspective. 3) Take away key strategies for talks with our team members and managers to ensure that inclusion and belonging are a reality. 4) Learn to stand fully in our own power.
