The pandemic has wrought unprecedented levels of uncertainty and stress, requiring us all to adapt to an ever-changing world. It has also inspired reflection on, and reevaluation of, what is important in our lives. Join us for this introspective, three-part online series on redefining ourselves, our strengths, the narratives that have brought us where we are, and our vision for the future.
Part 1: Who Am I Now? (April 22 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm PT)
How can we utilize our core strengths to propel our life, work, and future? This session integrates art making and the Top 5 CliftonStrengths® Assessment to help us reidentify and optimize our unique constellation of strengths.
Part 2: What’s My Story? (April 29 from 10:00 am to Noon PT)
Part 3: Where Am I Going? (May 6 from 10:00 am to Noon PT)
Maggie Harris, Gallup-Certified CliftonStrengths® Coach, SHRM-CP, has more than 20 years’ experience developing individuals and teams. As a former Partner at an Advertising Agency, she is familiar with fast-paced, demanding organizations that thrive when individuals and teams are performing at their peak. Maggie is a strong believer that the most productive workplaces are made up of people who are able to do what they do best every day in environments that embrace differences. As a Gallup-Certified Strengths coach, Maggie works with her clients to reveal their true talents and teaches them how to invest in those talents to become strengths. Maggie’s area of expertise includes workplace well-being, executive coaching, team dynamics, leadership training, and conflict resolution.
Asia Moore, MSW, MA, PhD(c), is a multicultural story-warrior who believes telling and sharing stories has the power to change the world, one person, one place, one program at a time. From her background as an expressive arts therapist and clinical social worker with expertise in trauma-informed care to her current doctoral studies in positive developmental psychology and evaluation, you can find Asia in the gaps, cracks, and shadows looking for ways to uplift the voices being personally and systemically silenced. In Asia you will find a passionate co-conspirator ready to help and to listen, a creative problem-solver who sees opportunities where others see obstacles, and a practical optimist dedicated to seeing and celebrating the strengths and beauty in the communities up against the most challenging of circumstances.

Nadia is an adjunct professor and art therapy supervisor at Loyola Marymount University, where she teaches about art activism.

In order to keep our programs affordable yet self-sustaining, we regret that we are unable to offer refunds for cancellation; however, we are happy to provide you with credit good for one year from the date of the program toward the next offering of the same program or a different one. Credit applied toward a program with higher registration fees will require payment of the balance. In addition, credit may be applied toward purchase of curriculum materials for any program. Unused fees after one year would then be tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law because no goods or services would have been received for them.
