Leading Self with Courage

15 July

On Monday, 15 July 2019, Ms Dina Pozzo, Founder and Director, insium pty ltd delivered a full-day workshop titled “Leading Self with Courage” as part of the first session for the Leading the Way stream and second session for the Stamina stream of the inspiring women STEM sidebyside program at the Victorian Innovation Hub, Launch Vic.

As part of their pre-session work, participants were required to request friends, family and colleagues to provide feedback of when they have been courageous in their personal life or workplace. The letters helped participants recognize that they have been courageous in the past without realizing they had.

 

Ms Pozzo began the workshop with an activity providing an opportunity for participants to initiating communication and creating an environment where participants are comfortable in sharing their stories with their fellow participants.

To add to the atmosphere of feeling empowered, supported and the importance of trust – Ms Pozzo showcased Keala Settle’s This is Me rehearsal footage as well as the Braving Trust video by Brene Brown.

 

Ms Pozzo then requested participants to explore their past and share their stories with a partner wherein focusing more on the positive, leaving the participants proud and recognizing of their achievements.

 

The session concluded with a final activity – Think Tank – in small groups participants shared a workplace situation to which others provided potential actions. This helped participants gain advice and encouragement to work through their personal situation and also realize that they are not the only ones facing a situation.
