The famous Swiss psychologist Carl Jung said this about self-awareness, “everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” He also added, “When an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside, as fate.”
The recreation profession, LTI, self-awareness, and Carl Jung….what in the world does one have to do with the other? Actually, the overlap is significant! Our personalities and how we view ourselves and interact with others greatly impacts how successful we are in our profession and in our daily lives. Unfortunately, Carl Jung won’t be speaking at LTI in April of 2016. He passed away in 1961. Don’t be disappointed! The LTI committee has been working at length to put together an amazing slate of speakers and experiences. This year’s LTI will allow you to share, be shaped by others, and leave you with a great, career awakening experience…beginning and ending with you!
Capping the LTI experience will be a riveting send off by Zin White, a highly decorated civil servant and military veteran who will captivate us all and that “We Can Make a Difference and It Begins with Me!”
