Casting the Call with Libra Forde Event Flyer

RJI August 27th Session 

Session Title: Casting the Call: The Best Role for You with Guest Speaker Libra Forde

Description: This session will focus on helping the participants grow into “where they are” to help them settle into where they are going. We will use a beautiful metaphor of the path of an “actor” preparing for a role to parallel educators preparing for the important work of learning, unlearning and re-learning. Libra will explore navigating critic voices vs reflected voices and the associated scripts that either need to be interrupted or need to be developed.
