I’m educated in the Presence Theory through theory and practice. Emmanuel Levinas is a big influence on my view on humanity.
I develop and practice a view on the world, humanity and the unknowable through self-improvement and knowledge. I have decent overview on what makes up a religious, philosophical and ethical/moral frame of reference of a person. Combined with the others’ personal developmental, psychological and social aspects I can make make an effort to assist in personal growth within ones own context.
Through engagement and finding the right perspective I’m able to contextualise knowledge and educate a group or individuals. Conversation is key.
In verbal and non-verbal communication I know what to say and when to say it. More importantly I know when to keep silence.
I’m naturally sensitive to emotional undertones in voice and body language. I can deduct mental states with ease and adjust mine accordingly. Beside that I’m well aware of how my body language and speech can be interpreted by others.
I take feedback as positive self-improvement. I internalize, reflect and adjust accordingly.
Reflecting on my words, actions and attitude in situations is a high skill I value most of all. It’s connected to my personal and professional growth.
