Identity Crisis: Finding Power in Defining Yourself
In today's world, there is very little if any time devoted to figuring out one of life's most important and most ignored questions: Who am I? The power of this question is not immediately apparent, as it seems like a pretty straightforward answer. But is it really? How you choose to identify yourself can distinguish you as a leader, can influence your interactions with coworkers, family, and friends, can contribute to stress both positively or negatively, and can change the landscape of your job search and your life. And that's all just the beginning. As part of this session, attendees will:
- Learn the distinction between internal and external validation
- Begin to answer the questions: "Who am I?" and "Who do I want to be?"
- Be empowered to redefine the way others see and interact with you
- Combat impostor syndrome by identifying your truest self
- Overcome or avoid the dreaded mid-life crisis
