Session 2: Making Others Good
SFP Chart: Tool to use when you find yourself feeling stuck or dissatisfied in a 1:1 relationship or notice yourself having strong negative judgments of someone else.
The purpose of this exercise: Recognize your contribution to the unsatisfying relationship dynamic and where you have leverage to improve it by seeing where you have built up baggage and judgments about the person, and how that is affecting the relationship.
7 Steps to “Making Good”
This one page worksheet outlines the 7 steps to “Making Good.” It is useful to have this worksheet to help you walk through your buddy exercise between this session and the next.
The purpose of this exercise: Regularly meet with a “Making Good” buddy. Use the Steps of Making Good as part of that buddy relationship and work on shifting a dynamic with a person that you find yourself easily stepping in to “Making Bad” behaviors with.

Session 3: Embracing Learning
The purpose of this exercise: We’ve created the Pinch Sorting chart to help you recenter and act from a creative place any time you feel At the Mercy.
When to use this chart: We can pinch ourselves quite a bit! Use this chart as often as possible to build the muscle of sorting your pinch. Turn moments that you feel At the Mercy into opportunities for introspection. By becoming clear about what’s actually going on, clarifying your activated Ego Drivers, and looking for other factors you may have previously missed; you can regain your creative agency instead of staying At the Mercy of your feelings toward yourself, others or the broader environment.
The purpose of this exercise: The AFI Shifter is intended to help you summarize and visualize the unfortunate reinforcing cycle which keeps us at the mercy of continuing our counterproductive reactions. The first step is to disrupt the counterproductive automatic cycle by noticing the cues that launch you into the cycle and reminding you of the costs that you absolutely want to stop creating. Then explore new practices that will help you show up in a different way.
When to use this chart: You can use this chart when feeling “stuck” in or at the mercy of one of your areas for improvement.
