Obey Your Instinct.
Have you ever had a gut feeling about something then disregarded that feeling and lived to regret it? Every day, all day, an intelligent agent is sending us messages. We hear them in our heads, feel them in our guts, discern them in our hearts. Our instinct alerts us to important information, information that deserves attention is worth checking out. When we obey our instinct, we don't stop at the first answer. We dig deeper to discover whats really going on, what the conversation really wants and needs to be about. As we hone our attention and learn to listen to our instinct, we learn to trust it more, and we increase our chances of creating the outcomes we want for ourselves and others.
This bundle includes three introductory activities to Fierce Conversations, as well as three activities that take roughly 20 minutes each to complete. In Principle 5, students will learn to understand what it means to pay attention to their instincts, how to accurately listen to their gut and what happens when they ignore their instincts.
