The Authentic Professional Series: Shifting from Judgment to Curiosity

- Closed for Registration

11 All Souls Lane - Charlottetown Yoga Space -Charlottetown, Prince Edward island


About This Session

Building on the idea that we are more effective in our work when we can be authentic and natural, this workshop will challenge your judgments and assumptions - and help you become more curious! 

As people working with people. we are called on to manage feelings of hurt, anger and defensiveness. When conflict arises in our organizations, families and workplaces, the people involved  often develop "tunnel vision".  Judgments and assumptions abound. We may try and help people move through their difficulties and open themselves up to the many possibilities for the future, but this is not easy.

We need to be aware that, even as we try to help, we are influenced by our own judgments and assumptions. Added to the challange is the fact that people may very well expect us to bring sound judgment and strong analytical skills to the problem.  Heck - they might even ask us for advice!

In this 1 day workshop, we will explore our own judgments and assumptions and learn how to be "productively" curious. With a combination of experiential learning, and self-exploration, you will learn how to be effective in asking questions, more natural in your responses, and more authentic in your practice. We also think that playing with curiosity will help you enjoy your life more!
