Owning Your Power Workshop: Outcomes

Apr 30 2024 0 Comments


The goals of my Owning Your Power Workshop are simple yet profound: to help students understand their worth. While the sessions are designed to be enjoyable, they are also transformative, fostering growth and empowerment in students. Here are three key outcomes of the Owning Your Power Workshop.

Negative Self-Perceptions Transformed

One outcome of the Owning Your Power Workshop is the transformation of negative self-perceptions into positive ones. Many students struggle with feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt, often fueled by their inner critic. Through interactive activities and discussions, students learn to identify and challenge this inner critic, replacing negative self-talk with affirming and empowering thoughts. By recognizing their unique strengths and talents, students develop a sense of confidence and self-worth that transcends any self-doubt.


Shifting Perspective on Comparisons

Another significant outcome of the workshop is the shift in perspective on comparisons. In today's social media-driven culture, students are constantly bombarded with images and messages that promote unrealistic standards of beauty, success, and happiness. During the workshop, students come to understand that comparing themselves to others is both inaccurate and unnecessary. They learn to embrace their individuality and appreciate their own journey without the need for comparison. This shift in perspective cultivates a healthier mindset, free from the pressures of unrealistic standards set by society.

Broadened Understanding of Achievement

The third outcome of the Owning Your Power Workshop is a broadened understanding of achievement. In traditional academic settings, success is often measured by grades, test scores, and awards. However, students may overlook their personal growth and progress, feeling discouraged if they do not meet certain benchmarks. Through the workshop, students learn to celebrate their efforts and accomplishments, regardless of how they may compare to others. They recognize that achievement is not limited to external validation but includes personal growth, resilience, and perseverance. This newfound appreciation for their achievements boosts their self-esteem and motivates them to continue striving for success.


Beyond these three key outcomes, the impact of the Owning Your Power Workshop extends far beyond the classroom. Students who participate in the workshop are better equipped to navigate the challenges of adolescence and beyond. They develop essential life skills such as self-awareness, resilience, and self-advocacy, which are invaluable assets in all aspects of their lives. Moreover, the workshop empowers students to become agents of change in their communities, promoting positivity, inclusivity, and acceptance.

What challenges do you see your students facing in terms of self-perception and comparison to others? How do you think empowering them with tools of self-acceptance and comparison to their own growth and progress could benefit them in other areas of their lives? Share in the comments below.
