Rethinking it, this session is about being proactive in your thoughts; actively thinking about what you are saying, how you talk to yourself and others about yourself. How you talk and think influences your perspective and the choices you make. Instead of reinforcing negative thoughts and words we are going to use this theme of being proactive with your thinking to flip the negative enforcement. In this session we use interactive, interesting experiential exercises to gain insight and focus.
