Every day we have an opportunity to be leaders in whatever role we are in. We hold ourselves back in multitudes of ways from being our full potential and letting our light shine. We tell ourselves stories about not being (____) enough, and they are just not true. This breakout session is about being aware of the stories we tell ourselves and rewriting them. Rather than criticizing, comparing, and competing with one another, shift the focus to acknowledging, appreciating, and admiring each another for what we bring to the table.
