What is this thing called a ‘gift’?

A gift is something we all have inside us, like an “inner quality” or characteristic, that is shaped by our life experiences. 

It’s something we love to give to others, and take joy in sharing. It guides our life’s choices and the way we interact with others.

It’s not the same as being “good” at something, like a sport… it’s something far more intricate and unique to you, and only you!

You’ve probably heard the saying “a gift isn’t a gift until it’s given’ before? This is because showing up in meaningful ways and sharing our gifts is an extraordinarily important means of building relationships and sparking connection.

Understanding and using our gifts is both an old and a new idea. Many traditional cultures and faiths, centuries old, used specific methods to identify and grow gifts in their members. Now, modern neuroscience and positive psychology have proven that we can find meaning in our lives and work, and thrive by knowing and giving our gifts to others.


Unlocking Potential and Purpose in Teams and Individuals.

Your core gift isn't just about personal fulfillment. For leaders and managers, understanding core gifts can transform team dynamics, boost productivity, and elevate job satisfaction. By leveraging this knowledge, leaders can foster a culture where individuals align their gifts with organizational goals, enhancing collective outcomes.

Knowing one's core gift is essential to navigating one's life and career purposefully. It provides unparalleled clarity in career decisions, job satisfaction, understanding team behaviors, and fostering genuine connections. Now, imagine amplifying this understanding across an entire team or organization. Become the catalyst for a profound culture change.

Cultivating Thriving Communities

Become a Master Gift Facilitator and help others in the community to discover their gifts, and help them create the conditions that enable these gifts to be spread further into the community, thus enriching lives and nourishing relationships that allow everyone to thrive. Helping community members to find out their gifts is the first step towards supporting them to believe that they have something meaningful to contribute. 


This workshop is part of a series in partnership with the Jeder Institute and the Core Gift Institute:
