About This Workshop

Self-awareness has long been recognized as one of the most important traits for leaders to develop. By understanding our own motivations, values and desires, we are better equipped to lead others, make healthy decisions and form healthy relationships. In this workshop, join nonprofit sector leader and speaker Laura DeMaria to delve into what self-awareness is and why it matters in both our professional and personal lives, along with practical tools to grow in self-knowledge.

We’ll learn how to incorporate practices into daily life that lead to increased self-awareness, including:

  • Learning to recognize and live one’s chosen values
  • Prayer and meditation as tools for self-awareness
  • The value of journaling and writing

This workshop is perfect for people early in their careers, new to a leadership position, or those simply desirous of better getting to know themselves in order to be more effective teammates, partners, and friends, at home and in the workplace.

It makes a great gift for yourself, a loved one, or a colleague!
