Get Awkward: The Power of Authenticity
Positive psychology tells us that finding your authentic voice and having a clear sense of self and identity are critical to feeling fulfilled as a human being. But how do you find your way to authenticity? How do you know what your true voice is? In this keynote, SoulPancake co-founder Shabnam Mogharabi will share insights around how to force yourself to feel awkward and uncomfortable in an effort to tab into your vulnerability, and ultimately the authentic personal voice and interpersonal connections that make us who we are.
