The presentation, Personal Legacy is asking the participant, “How do I want to be known?  Remembered?” This workshop will explore relationship building with those closest to you, your workplace relationships and your relationship with yourself.  How to paint a self-portrait through relationships and self-awareness.

Andrew Steiger, Licensed Clinical Social Worker with RCMS, will discuss building and maintaining relationships throughout your life.  Local film maker and resident Jim Yager will use his extensive interviewing and storytelling experience to help participants come up with questions for themselves that will be the most revealing in terms of who they are as individuals and how they would like to be thought of in their relationships with others.

How these relationships are built and then maintained will influence how people come to know you and remember you. Are you thought of as kind?  Loving? Clever? Serious?
