What makes a superhero a superhero? What superhero can you identify with most and why?

Superheroes represent qualities we appreciate and capabilities we long to have. But beyond all their abilities, outfits and characteristics we admire our superheroes’ attitudes to challenges. In comparison to them, most of us play small and don’t allow ourselves to fulfill our wishes and goals. Unfortunately, most of us even create our own small “Supervillains” as inner voices telling us to stay where we are and not to even dare reaching our full potentials. These so called "Saboteurs" are the source of our inner voice that demotivates, discourages and distracts us from what we really want and wish for in our lives and carriers. The good news is: We all have someone who can battle our Saboteurs - our inner Superhero! As this course will teach you, we can create and awake an inner voice that represents what we want to stand for. But before we can challenge our Saboteur with our Superhero we first need to identify, explore and awake it.

In this IAP courses “Awaken Your Inner Superhero” Dr. Konstantin Mitgutsch from the MIT Game Lab combines recent research findings into transformative learning with tools and practices from life coaching and visualization technics. The participants learn to identify the essential underlying qualities of their inner superhero and explore ways to transfer their “super skills” into their private and professional lives.
