'Being of Influence' is a self-empowerment workshop for those wanting to master the art of influence and make more of an impact in the world. We’ll be introducing new processes and tools for putting your purpose into practice as a Queer Leader or Change-Maker whilst still safe-guarding your own health and well-being.
“The key to successful leadership is influence, not authority.” Kenneth Blanchard
- Gain some clarity on what it is that you really want to achieve
- Discover new self-care tools for managing your own wellbeing
- Challenge self-imposed personal narratives
- Acquire fresh perspectives
- Feel empowered having discovered new information about yourself
- Refresh and recalibrate your core values
- Increase the positive impact you could have in the world
During this three-hour workshop, we'll start to explore how you can act on your commitments to drive positive change while keeping sight of your own core needs and values. Those who master the art of influence are often skilled at tapping into the emotions that drive people’s actions. This explains why influence is synonymous with leadership. But how do we ensure that we are actually having an impact? And at the same time safe-guarding our own well-being and remaining true to ourselves.
We want you to feel empowered with the new information you’re going to uncover and leave with actionable steps towards taking more control of your own life.
You will take part in various creative and interactive workshops to help you bring your intentions to life, and we’ll be encouraging you to use your mind and body to discover brand new perspectives about yourself.
We'll be incorporating tried and tested practices such as journaling, group sharing, self-enquiry, breath-work and meditation. These will be interspersed with key teachings and coaching techniques.
We offer a safe space to get curious, open up and discuss with others, aspects of your life you’re finding challenging or simply want to improve. Naturally it is a completely confidential space, where individuals can openly share their feelings and thoughts with the option of anonymity.
Your safety comes first.
Your safety is our main priority. For this reason, we may need to ask participants for some personal medical information, before we can confirm your place on the workshop. These are standard questions, there to protect your safety and everyone else involved. This information will only be shared on a need to know basis and will be GDPR compliant. We will also be undertaking other necessary safety measures, during and post-retreat.
We would highly recommend individuals with concerns relating to pre-existing mental health conditions, substance misuse and related disorders to seek immediate professional help.
