Nuggets and Pearls: A Ring of Engagement Using the Power of Affirmation

Presented by
Session Description:
Nuggets and pearls represent the words and deeds of affirmation that are so easily overlooked and yet so effective in building trust and cohesiveness in any team. The core principles and building blocks of Motivational Interviewing (OARS: Open questions, Affirmations, Reflections, and Summaries) will be reviewed, with particular attention placed on the efficacy of affirmation. Through guided real-play participants will experience the power of intentional affirmation delivery in leadership, and will leave with a new found awareness of and appreciation for a well-placed word.

This session will amplify easy to institute communication skills that touch on three behaviors that support ETH: “Makes it a point to let people know about his/her confidence in their abilities”, “Praises people for a job well done” and “”Gives the members of the team lots of support and appreciation for their contributions”

“Affirmation of strengths can in itself bolster self-esteem and confidence. Affirming a person’s strengths is a way of bolstering hope and confidence when someone is short on it.” Motivational Interviewing: Helping People Change (3rd Edition, p 216) W.R. Miller and S. Rollnick, Guilford Press 2013
"The Leadership Challenge Forum is a transformational leadership experience. I appreciate the opportunity to learn from leadership scholars and experts coupled with the opportunity to network with colleagues."
- Ron Siers, Department Chair, Department of Education Specialties at Salisbury University
