This is the first session of Miki's 4 session course recording, Embracing Leadership within Yourself.

The course recording is available in its entirety through the NVC Library.

What does it really mean to take leadership of your own inner life?

In simplest terms, it’s about paying attention and noticing every time you’re tempted to see yourself as a victim. And it’s about choosing to embrace an attitude of responsibility and proactive engagement with life instead. Although you operate (much of the time) within conditions, circumstances, and systems that are not of your choosing, you are nonetheless free to choose how you respond to life – and free to make yourself and your life more and more of what you want it to be.

Embracing Leadership within Yourself supports your taking a step-by-step approach to making this shift a reality. You’ll uncover obstacles to taking full responsibility and develop practices for integrating your new choices into your life. The goal: for you to establish yourself firmly on the path of becoming the person you want to be, while maintaining love and compassion for who you currently are.

The four sessions cover the following topics:

  • Understanding leadership
  • Taking full responsibility for your life: aligning with vision
  • Taking full responsibility for your life: aligning with values
  • Making peace with your fallibility
