Take a moment and let your body and mind settle. If you are comfortable doing so, spend a few moments in peaceful meditation. In preparation for this session on flexibility, you may wish to reflect on times when you have had to listen to your inner voice about what to do.
- When has your conscience led you to do something, even though there wasn't an outside force telling you to do it?
- What examples of people with integrity have you encountered or wished to emulate?
As an adult leader, your opinion may have more influence than those of participants. Therefore, your personal disclosure should not become part of the discussion unless participants ask you a question directly. In that case, be sure to preface your opinion by setting the context that each of us, adults and children, has differing opinions, and yours is one among many. Then guide the conversation away from your own opinion and allow participants to reflect on their own thoughts.
