Deepen Your Relationships Through Authenticity and Vulnerability

About the Workshop

Being authentic, honest, and vulnerable can improve your relationships, develop your leadership abilities, and increase your resiliency. However, it can feel intimidating to embrace and demonstrate those traits! Through interactive discussions and reflective exercises, participants in this program will learn how embracing their authentic selves and cultivating honesty and vulnerability will strengthen their relationships both in the workplace and at home, fostering deeper connections and trust.

As a result of this workshop, participants will be equipped to:

  • Choose authenticity as a life practice
  • Identify and utilize their values to boost their resiliency
  • Recognize the benefits of being vulnerable in their relationships
