With the immediacy of today’s world, our core values are something that we don’t take the time to examine.  So much of today’s self-awareness/improvement craze has more to do with self-care than self-examination. People and organizations around the world are not capitalizing on what is probably the most lucrative commodity to the human experience…. Emotional Intelligence.

These course sessions are designed to encourage participants to examine and take inventory of what drives them – their moral compass and constitution – and how that translates into their environment and the world at large. 

The purposefully-designed and facilitated discussions will encourage participants to access, increase, and capitalize on their Emotional Equity for the purpose of healing, repairing, and building relationships. The course encourages real and useful self-awareness built from an introspective look at our core values: their roots, how they inform our opinions and responses, and how we can use them to be at our best, not only for ourselves but for others.

What to Expect:  These discussions take a grassroots approach to redesigning the institutions that frame our lives through reflection and self-assessment around personal core values and belief systems. Expect a series of conversational-style training workshops that rely on one’s moral code/values to facilitate and encourage self-reflection. Hopefully, this will allow you to see who are from the inside out, and how that relates to the world at large, leaving you with an understanding of the need to “THINK HIGHER, FEEL DEEPER through a dialogue designed to truly connect us to our reality and inspire change.”  Please note:  Due to the nature of this discussion, it will not be recorded.
