Discovering The Cultural Assets That Motivate Us

This lesson consists of five activities that lead participants to recognize their unique system of core values. Core values are our personal beliefs and cultural assets that drive an individual’s behavior. It is these cultural assets that help people overcome life challenges and build resilience. Storytelling is also introduced as a cultural tool to embrace one’s lived and life experiences and to connect with others through stories and empathy. Helping people recognize the value of community connectedness and belonging as part of their well-being is another key component of this lesson. Finally, recognizing the motivational attributes that are unique to each individual and their drive to succeed.
