Participant Book page 27 – Your Uniqueness Summary

As they go through this session and subsequent sessions, your group will gradually complete “Your Uniqueness Summary.” We recommend you and your group place a small Post-It™ note or gold paperclip on this page for easy reference throughout the course.
