From Awareness to Positive Action

Drawing from the fields of emotional intelligence, mindfulness and neuroscience, this self-paced course will teach you how to develop greater self-awareness and how to show up in more positive ways for others. To give you time to practice all the tools provided, we suggest pacing one lesson per week.

Session 2: How can I cultivate curiosity?
Session 3: How can I focus on hearing others?
Session 4: How can I imagine possibilities beyond what I know?
Session 5: How do I move from awareness to positive action?
