In Phase 1, you will create your reflected best-self portrait. In Phase 2, you will create a personal development action plan inspired by new insight into you at your best. (Content previously found in the Bringing My Reflected Best Self to Life workbook.) After each step in either phase you will see how our sample participant, Shawn, approached the step and a “Your Turn” icon ( ) with suggestions for how you can approach the step yourself. For some steps we also discuss other options to augment the exercise.
