I love conducting trainings for professionals, and classes for parents and other adults in the community where I work. I always start these presentations off with an activity to get the audience going, and this is one of my favorites:
Think for just a minute about 5 unique attributes that you possess that make you good at what you do best. (i.e. your job, being a mom or dad, being a spouse, etc..)
Write those attributes down, and next to each one of them, write down 1 piece of evidence from the last week or two that lets you know that you possess this particular attribute.
As soon as they’re finished with this little list, I am standing in front of a room full of awesomely successful people, who were just forced to remember how uniquely talented & amazing they all really are.
Quite a set up, eh?
I feel lucky to be in the room with ’em, every single time.
I bet if I knew your list, I’d feel honored you were reading this right now.
