Write the first thing that comes to mind
A few of you will read the entire sheet
Then we’ll do something kind of cool with it  Activity Aspects of Individual Identity
values, principles, culture, faith, family, generational peers, personal style, talents, skills, aspirations and dreams.
awareness of one’s current emotional and mental condition, the state of being an observer of oneself. Helpful vocabulary! Consciousness of Self
“implies an awareness and an acknowledgment of those relatively stable aspects of the self that make up what we call ‘personality’: talents, interests, aspirations, values, concerns, self-concept, limitations, and dreams. Second, self-awareness implies ‘mindfulness,’ an ability and a propensity to be an accurate observer of your current actions and state of mind.” Helpful vocabulary! There are practices that can help us become more conscious of ourselves:
A practice of reflection
Openness to feedback
Becoming conscious of ourselves lets us assess our readiness to engage in social change. It allows us to better work with other participants and engage in valuable experiences with our group or team. Why is this section important to ASB Students? Although students always seem to be busy, it is imperative to take time to reflect on life’s bigger questions: Who am I? How would I describe myself? What values am I living by? Why am I here? Consciousness of ones self describes a life long journey that requires us to constantly reflect on ourselves. Our values and principles
Our personal style
Our talents, skills and specialized knowledge
Our aspirations and dreams There are different aspects that influence who we come to be. By becoming conscious of your own self, you then become aware of the things that originally motivated you.
This can help in group settings like ASB and is an important aspect in defining a leader. Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power. -Unknown Consciousness of Self is one’s self-awareness, as shaped in part by the influence of others.
It is not an end point that can be reached; instead, it is adopting a way of life that promotes constant learning about what is most important. Consciousness of Self: What is it? For ASB students to have a full understanding of what consciousness of self is
Apply what they learn to real life situations they encounter during ASB and their time at UO
Really analyze themselves to work towards solidifying an understanding of who they are
Be open to feedback Objectives and Goals Consciousness of Self Congruence Learning
Objectives Define congruence and how to achieve it in life and leadership
Identify obstacles to congruence and how they can be overcome
Understand the role congruence plays in group dynamic in order to empower others to be congruent
Reach a sound understanding of how congruence is connected with other C's in the Social Change Model What is Congruence? Acting in ways that are consistent with one's values and beliefs
Requires a person to have a deeply felt consciousness of self
Means a person's thoughts, feelings and behaviors are guided by an unwavering honesty, authenticity, and genuineness towards others Knowing the Self A person must have a deep understanding of what values and beliefs he/she hold in high esteem
Ethics must be a part of a person's content and process
A person must have courage to stand against the status quo and stick up for what he/she believes to be right
A person must find comfort in standing alone and find comfort in knowing he/she is capable and full of overwhelming potential Congruence and Leadership Authentic leadership occurs when individuals represent themselves in a manner that is synonymous with their nature
Having character is directly tied to leading with authenticity
Character encompasses a person's uniqueness and realization that he/she is purposeful only in relation to others Being Congruent in Groups Congruence becomes difficult when on exists in a group
Members of the group often have conflicting values
Leading a group congruently requires that a leader validate their follower's truth and learn to see from their point of view
When congruency is not occurring, an adaptive leader should recognize this and proceed to rectify the situation Commitment Commitment Passion Board:

Using magazines, create a collage of your passions. You can use pictures, quotes, or words to express what you enjoy doing the most and how it is a part of your life.

Be sure to include the names of five people who you aspire to be like. Activity! (since we know what it is now…) How does commitment relate to social change? A burnout is a psychological consequence of over-commitment.
It is when an individual spends so much time in one activity that the stress and frustrations get to them.
Solution? – Always have an outlet. Over-commitment? The key to sustaining commitment is balance.

Because of the time and energy needed to be deeply committed to a cause, time demands of conflicting commitments can create challenges. Sustaining Commitment To be committed to something, you need to be motivated.

Extrinsic motivation is when your will to complete a task is driven by rewards provided by outside sources.

Intrinsic motivation is when you complete a task because of your internal passions and values. Motivation When your true passions are in congruence with your actions, that is your authentic self.

By expressing your passions through the action of helping others, you are expressing your authentic self. Authentic Self How have they helped bring about social change? What are your passions? For Alternative Break students, commitment is the driving force behind what we do. It keeps us dedicated to our task and allows us to provide dedicated service

Without commitment, we would not be able to do what we do best – provide consistent service to the people who need it most. Why is this important? Commitment is the passion you have for something whether it be sports, music, or helping others. It is what motivates you to get out there and do whatever it is you love to do; it is the accomplishment you feel after you have completed something. What does that mean??? Commitment is defined as the individual, innate passion or desire, consists of intrinsic motivation, and comprises both intensity and duration.

Commitment is related integrally to authentic passions and results in a deep sense of fulfillment, thus allowing these passions to motivate and drive the individual through difficult challenges. What is Commitment? Know what commitment really means
