The training activity took place
in Doksy - Prague
organised by AIESEC Czech Republic

Aims & objectives

Self-Discovery Trainer - Show the delegates the importance of self discovery as a starting point for personal leadership (leading of one’s own life) and leading of others. Give the delegates a tool to find out what they can do in life – show them a way of finding their life purpose and vision. Find the topics of external environment delegates care about.
- Provide space for the delegates to discover themselves – understand their current reality, life story, their values and desires, strengths, talents and passions. Participants experience a space where they can retreat, reflect, share and listen to their inner voice.

Outcomes of the activity

Delegates got the input of importance of Self-discovery or leading their own life on the examples of life stories of external guests, who speak about topics such as how they found their life purpose, how they got to do what they do, what they love and how they combine what they are good at with what they do. Delegates got inputs on the Leadership topic from externals who share their understanding of LDS, how they demonstrate LDS in daily life, which LDS concepts they favour, what is their life philosophy and such.
