- The Ten Commandments of Positive Relationships
- During this session, participants will explore ten ways to build positive relationships, including using uplifting messages.
- Knowing your fears can help you address them. Participants will complete a self-confidence assessment and then the group will discuss fears and solutions.
- During this session, you will help participants identify their strengths and weaknesses through a personal exercise and a role-play.
- Communication Barriers
