Would you like to be more of a self-actualizing leader in both your personal and professional life? Are you aware of the enormous benefits to you, your relationships, and your organization?

Do you know that there is no time to begin other than now? Self-actualization does not depend on age or education. It rests solely on a desire to be a more effective person in work and play, and to live a more engaged life.

Abraham Maslow, creator of the Hierarchy Needs, insisted that healthy people strive to self-actualize. It is part of their nature. To self-actualize means essential two things: One is a healthy appreciation of one’s self. The second is nurturing and working with this self to live out one’s potential in all the facets of one’s life. This is an ongoing and exciting journey.

A few key benefits that arise from the impetus to self-actualize include:

  • Greater self-awareness, independence of mind, and self-acceptance
  • Greater resilience, adaptability to change, and courage to take risks
  • Greater internal motivation and less dependence on affirmation from external factors
  • An ability to be less emotional, less fearful, less defensive, and more objective
  • A capacity for more profound personal relations
  • A freedom to be spontaneous and creative
  • Greater self-discipline and self-mastery to see things through
  • Enhanced resilience and perspective taking
  • An ability to find real meaning in life

In this hands on, highly interactive Seminar you will have an opportunity to look at yourself through seven different mirrors. Through questionnaires and discussion, you will assess yourself to see in which domains you are self-actualizing; where you are inhibited, and what the blocks to growth and fulfilling your potential might be.

Mirror 1 -- How do you self-actualize in your relationship with yourself?

Mirror 2 -- How do you self-actualize in your relationship with others?

Mirror 3 -- How do you self-actualize in your career?

Mirror 4 -- How do you self-actualize in your work performance?

Mirror 5 -- How do you self-actualize by being creative?

Mirror 6 -- How do you self-actualize by being adaptive to change?

Mirror 7 -- How do you self-actualize by nurturing your soul?

These sessions will be highly interactive. Participants will be asked to complete a questionnaire that covers each one of these aspects and will then have an opportunity to reflect and discuss with others how they might become more self-actualizing.

At the end of each section there will be a summing up and techniques and suggestions will be provided. By the end of the Seminar, you will have achieved greater self-awareness and some feedback, ideas and strategies for building your courage, adaptability and resilience.
