My Courageous Self –
An evidence-based, practical workshop

The demonstration of courage provides a number of individual and workplace benefits. These benefits include the creation of positive energy and improved motivation; increased accountability, conscientiousness and empathy; increased resourcefulness and goal attainment; increased self-confidence; increased willingness to learn from mistakes; increased healthy relationships and inclusiveness; and increased inspiration to act courageously after witnessing acts of courage by others. As described by Robert Biswas-Diener, courage enables individuals to live a full life, and hence is a key contributor to wellbeing.

The key aim of this highly practical workshop is to heighten self-awareness of own courage. Participants will be invited to join in an appreciative discussion designed to build meta-knowledge of own past courageous acts, and will develop a plan to access this knowledge in future when needed. Additionally, through sharing stories, participants will broaden their own perspectives on courage.

Imagine the positive impact of your courageous self for you, for the colleagues with whom you work, for your family and friends. We know courage is contagious.

Courageous Conversations

A conversation:

  • an oral exchange of sentiments, observations, opinions, or ideas; Merriam-Webster
  • a talk between two or more people in which thoughts, feelings and ideas are expressed, questions are asked and answered, or news and information is exchanged; Cambridge

Consider your workplace:

  • Which conversations do you find comfortable to engage in; in fact, these conversations may feel quite effortless? Why is this?  What attributes and strengths do you offer to these conversations? Who else is involved, and what do they offer?  What are the beneficial outcomes of these conversations?
  • Which conversations do you find challenging or difficult to engage in; to initiate? What is the impact of these conversations on your genuine expression of thoughts, feeling and ideas?  What is the impact on your asking questions and listening with curiosity? What are the consequences of these conversations?

Challenging or difficult conversations come in all shapes and sizes.  These include:  speaking up in a meeting, speaking with a more senior colleague, giving feedback, receiving feedback, offering alternative opinions, providing space for others to challenge the status quo, delivering difficult messages, hearing difficult messages, saying no, managing poor performance, admitting mistakes.  There is no doubt that as you read through these situations, you would have agreed with the challenge in having some of these conversations and not others; that there may also be other situations that you would add to the list.

insium’s highly-practical, evidence-based Courageous Conversations workshop explores:

  • The conversations that you find comfortable and effortless
  • The conversations that you find difficult to engage in and/or initiate
  • How we can courageously express what we want and need
  • How we can find the courage to ask questions with genuine curiosity
  • How courage can enable us to listen more openly
