An Identity Method Workshop for Educators
CRISIS OF IDENTITY
You see the potential of every student.
Now discover the potential in yourself.
with Jamie Winship
“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
As educators, you commit your lives to help students learn and thrive. You see the potential in each student but may not see it in yourself. Young people today are experiencing a crisis of identity on an epidemic scale. So, what about you? You can't give away what you don't have.
A culture of achievement creates competition and pressure to succeed. Social media creates comparison and a need for approval. Uncertain times create fear and anxiety. Chronic anxiety leads to depression, substance abuse, and even suicide. There is an internal voice that says, “I am not enough.” These negative thought patterns and resulting behaviors are often treated on the surface instead of at the root.
Identity Method workshops help individuals identify core belief systems and develop a clear understanding of the inner conflict between a “false identity” (wrong beliefs about yourselves) and a “true identity” (knowing your inherent value).
Our training provides educators with the tools needed to facilitate transformation on an identity level:
- Eliminate conflict
- Optimize resiliency
- Access creativity
What people are saying
I invited Jamie to work with all of the administrators in my district. I was able to watch firsthand the transformation in their mindsets over a series of meetings as they were led through the Identity Method workshop. Several participants were able to articulate the impact on their practices as a result of learning to operate from their true identity rather than from a place of fear.

Discovering my true identity through the work with the Identity Method workshopfa brought a new freedom and understanding to how I operate in my daily life. This changed everything as I recognized who I was made to be. It strengthened me, and allowed me to give my personal best to others. Knowing my true identity helps me keep my focus on my purpose and gives me direction in every situation I face throughout the day.
KCS teacher 4th Grade
As an educator currently serving in my thirty-first year with a public school district (20 years at the high school level & 11 years at the middle school level), I have seen initiatives and programs come and go. The work associated with IDENTITY is by far the most effective and rewarding in terms of breaking through the barriers to student success. When people/students put in the work to know who they really are, they begin to walk in a new way that empowers them and those around them.
