Brief overview (3-minute coverage) of the Valuable Principle by facilitator. Attendees volunteer examples of personal strengths, assets, and “superpower“. Facilitators use 1 or 2 examples to briefly describe “being valued” scenario. Then ask attendees to offer “being valued” scenarios. Facilitators will be vigilant about making parallels between stories and possible relationship-building among participants.
