Managing our Internal Narratives as Practitioners/Leaders/Humans
March 5th, 2020 from 1:00pm-2:30pm ET
Join accomplished thought leader Alison Whitmire from Learning In Action for an interactive workshop on the “Top Three Ways We Get in Our Own Way: How Our Hidden Narratives Influence Our Choices.”
What’s up with that title!? Our choices are filtered through our internal narratives. Our narratives reflect and reveal our identity, perspectives, biases and what we believe is “right.” And sometimes, our narratives influence our work in ways that prevent us from being present to deep desires of those we work with.
During this interactive workshop, you’ll be presented with video vignettes of interpersonal conflicts. You’ll be invited to share your experience and internal narrative. Through a process of self-reflection and discussion, you’ll discover:
- The dominant dimensions of your own internal experience
- How your internal narrative influences your choices
- How to make more present, less filtered choices
When we are unaware of our narratives, they shape us and our work in ways we don’t know, can’t see and may not support others. By becoming aware of our narratives, we can ensure that our narratives don’t get in our way.
