Seeing & honoring our worth is a difficult concept. Riddled with shame, fear and extrinsic motivation, it can be difficult to separate ourselves from this sea of pressure consuming us and to feel confident to stand alone. In this session, we will explore the difference between our worth and value and basics in assertive communication to communicate those concepts more effectively and without caving to your negative self talk. We will take time to explore the roots of our negative self talk and self efficacy “disruptors” to allow attendees to create greater insight and understanding about the narratives in which they have existed until now. Form there, we will learn tangible skills and tools to help you lean into a more assertive lifestyle, protecting your time and resources and using them to cultivate a life in which you thrive rather than feel lost in the pervasiveness threat of shame and negative self talk.
