7.11.13 – Self-Awareness Workshop
On Nov. 7, 2013 ILead held their first workshop of the 2013/2014 term on Self Awareness. Estelle Oliva-Fisher from the Institute for Leadership volunteered her time to run a great workshop.We began by discussing the importance of knowing our personal values. To understand our personal values betters each person answered the following questions about themselves that we encourage you to try
• When you’re having your best conversation what are they about?
• What have you always been told you are good at?
• Describe you at your best (skill, qualities, abilities)?
• How do you want to be remembered by your organization (ILead: Grad or other)?
• Where do you think you are the most needed?
• Who in your life can help support you to grow into your highest potential self?
• How does your personal vision link to ILead: Graduate’s vision?
Using our answers we then created each created personal vision statements. We highlighted words in the answers that resonated with us and noted common themes. A great template to create your own personal statement is
“I will use my talent for and my passion for to create a
life that reflects my values of , and I will contribute .”
These are always helpful to have to know what you would like out of life, one can always refer to theirs whenever they are feeling lost. Also of course a person’s personal vision statement can change in the future. In the second part of the meeting we carried out the ‘True Color’ exercise, which is designed to help one find out about their personality type. The four main personality type categories were
Once we were able to identify our personality type we discussed qualities of these different personality types, also how these personality types interact and are perceived by others. Of course since humans are complex beings everyone does not exactly fit one of the above four personality types. People are a mixture, but most people were able to strongly identify with one of those four.We hope this workshop helped everyone become more Self-Aware, and hope to see you at future ILead: Grad Events. Also on behalf of everyone ILead: Grad would like to thank Estelle!
