Summer ARD Webinars Focused on Relationships with Ourselves, Others
“Your relationship with yourself is the most important relationship you’ll ever have,” according to Jennifer Keitt from Atlanta’s Keitt Institute. Explaining that having positive connections with ourselves shapes our relationships with others, Keitt kicked off a summer of webinars from the Army Resilience Directorate focusing on relationships, consent, and ethical character. June’s presentation included the opportunity for participants to take a pre-webinar character assessment and obtain a workbook for use during and after the webinar. Keitt discussed the importance of understanding individual character strengths, breaking them down into ‘buckets,’ explaining that no two people are the same, and that often, the differences complement each other. Understanding this concept can help create, navigate, and maintain positive relationships with ourselves and others.
