Self Esteem | Positive Education

Self EsteemMarch 22, 2013 Middles and seniors are concentrating on improving their self -esteem.Self-esteem is: GREEN thoughts and actions: believing in yourself; having confidence;  coping with different situations and making good decisions & judgements; leaves you happy and open to listen to advice; gives motivation and self confidence;HOW? Speaking an Assertive Manner- expressing thoughts and felings in a calm, clear and non-threatening manner, without hurting or disrespecting anyone; Using ‘I feel..’ statements; being a good friend; becoming fit and healthy; recognising good things you do; knowing your strengths; giving and accepting compliments; thinking green, positive thoughts and smiling!!Self esteem busters are: RED thoughts and actions: Not making eye contact; rolling eyes; lack of interest; name calling; interupting or not listening; negative comments; noises or grunts; bullying (many bullies have low self-esteem, so we need to help them) Speaking in an Aggressive Manner- you hurt and offend others, use gruff or rough language and/or actions, put people down, threaten, pressure others, snatch, act aggressively or get too close. Speaking in a Passive Voice- you are nervous, speak softly, don’t express yourself well and have wrong body language, turning away, not looking people in the eye or standing tall can actually ATTRACT bullying and make you an easy target. We are building Positive Self-Esteem through discussion in ‘circle,’ games, stories, setting goals, power points and role play. Here are some pictures of the students playing ‘Islands’ where there needs to be many decisions made, close contact with others, laughter and much co-operation for them to achieve the goal.Islands on PhotoPeachHow is YOUR Self-Esteem?

Getting the Most Out of Team Building Activities | team building tips

When it comes to getting the most out of team building activities, the old adage “you get out of it what you put into it” is true. Hiring a team building company doesn’t mean they are going to spoon feed your team answers or sprinkle them with fairy dust and – poof – they are an intact work group.  A good facilitator knows their role is simply to set up a team building activity that gets the conversation going.  From there, the reflection and transfer back to the workplace is up to the team.What?  Once an activity is completed, the What? is simply taking a look at the immediate observations.  The participants are gaining insight through their own experience. What did you see, hear, and experience in this activity?  The great thing about being a facilitator is that this is your experience, we’re just there to ask the right questions and get you thinking.So what?  The next part of the process is when participants internalize these experiences and begin to see the larger meaning and make correlations back to the office.  How is this experience similar to the way you operate in the workplace Continue reading
