What’s Your Story?

Henry Ford is quoted as saying, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”

Through observing, coaching, and mentoring well over a hundred new and aspiring leaders as they’ve taken on the challenges of their new roles, we see repeatedly that an individual’s level of self-confidence and self-efficacy is often the difference between achieving either a high level of success and achieving a mediocre or even unsatisfactory outcome.

Participants will learn how to focus on those stories that will show them that they can. Working with concepts such as internal dialogue and self-talk, workshop participants will examine and write or rewrite their personal stories in ways that build will build confidence and self-efficacy.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Recognize their own use of self-talk and internal dialogue
  • Examine the impact of self-talk and internal stories on their self-confidence level
  • Explain the concept of “self-efficacy”
  • Evaluate their own prior experiences for evidence of capability to achieve or succeed
  • Create a personal affirmative story for the future
  • Plan how they will use their affirmative story to build or maintain confidence prior to engaging in a new or unknown situation
