Rethinking Strengths with Professional Certified Coach Jennifer Shinkai

In this experiential workshop, participants will create a visual map of their strengths based upon the concept of “Strengths are what make me strong”.

Thursday November 1st / 19:00 - 21:00 / Members only: ¥3,000

Too often, as women especially, we focus on what we are not good at, or on the things that we do easily and well. Our “good girl/ good student” habits can be hard to shake off and we do things that drain our energy and focus on the wrong things.

Instead, Jennifer Shinkai, a Professional Certified Coach and certified Points of You ® Trainer will guide participants in small group work to focus on what activities make them feel strong and alive. At the end of the session, participants will have a new insight into their own strengths as perceived by themselves and others. When we bring this energy to our lives and our workplace, we can really start to have meaningful impact.
