The Courage to Embrace Our Unique Selves & Communication Style

Hello Courageous Girls! Over the last 2 days, we learned about universal connection, how our strengths are one aspect of ourselves that help us fulfill our purpose, discovering the virtues that we possess (and those that we want more of), and embracing our authentic selves. We also explored our communication styles, verbal, nonverbal, temperament, and how to effectively use "I statements" to take ownership of our feelings as we communicate our needs to others.


If you have not already done so, take the communication assessment and your strengths inventory. Our at-home activities for the two days are listed here:


Monday:

1. Create an authentic YOU self portrait. Use your creativity to design your masterpiece that expresses who you are!

2. Bring a social media post that grabs your attention


Tuesday:

3. Complete EQ quiz: https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/ei-quiz.htm

When you've finished, click "Calculate My Total," and use the table that follows to think about next steps.


4. With your family, practice "I messages." How does emotional intelligence include the use of “I Statements?”
