Self-Mastery means truly accepting who you are at this point in your development journey, then working toward even higher levels of self-development and growth. This session involves assessing your selfmastery level based on the self-mastery model from the chapter “Strive for Self-Mastery”in Ginger LapidBogda’s new book, What Type of Leader Are You?, followed by a series of self-development activities from Gestalt awareness training. These experiential exercises will be followed by a provocative and intense self-development process using the tool,”Extreme Growth: the Development Journey.”This session is intended for everyone interested in self-development – leaders, non-leaders, people new to the Enneagram, and those who have been using the Enneagram for many years.
