Leadership 6/7 B

How can I grow in awareness of myself, others, and the world around me?

Our Approach

Increasing our awareness of ourselves, others, and the world around us is a lifelong pursuit that enables us to experience life on a deeper, more rewarding level. In Leadership & Awareness, we learn how to become more cognisant of our communication habits and the messages we send and receive through body language, tone, and words. We practice listening with compassion and sincerity, as well as cultivating the art of timing in our communication and actions. We complete projects that help increase our awareness of negative thoughts and influences and the impact those have on our lives and relationships. We discuss how strengthening these essential elements in our lives furthers us on the path of holistic personal growth needed to live a meaningful life and become a principled leader. Through the practices of awareness, we can be a positive influence in the world.
