Exercise: To incorporate passion into sharing details about your goals.

Write for five minutes answering the following questions:

  1. What is one of your greatest values in life?
  2. What is a specific goal that you are dreaming of at this point in your life? Be very specific and create a SMART Goal

  3. Why do you want this dream in your life? What does it mean to you?
  4. How it could change/improve your life if you realized this goal?
  5. Are you ready to start sharing your dream?

In breakout rooms work with a partner.

One reads the answers to their five questions to their partner with 100% emotional commitment. Make it so large at times that it can’t get much bigger. Let emotions affect your voice, your tone, be loose and let yourself experiment with this exercise. The other partner listens. Take turns with the roles reversed. Come back to the main room. Everyone can turn their cameras off to bring the performing pair to the forefront.

Reflection: invited by the group to share and may include:

  • It helps to pick a clear goal and to share it with someone else
  • There is huge value in talking about your goals with people you trust
  • We get clearer when we share out goals, so practicing talking about it brings it into focus
  • It seems easier to support someone else who is in the spotlight
  • It can feel strange to highlight your own work, but you will thrive as you learn to centre your talents
  • Emotions make our goals more exciting to both ourselves and the listener
  • Moving towards our dreams may require us to try new things, experiment, learn more about ourselves, make mistakes and understand the importance
    of remaining open to our experience
