  3. Interactive Discussion: Engage in open and insightful discussions with fellow participants, experts, and facilitators to gain diverse perspectives on the subject.
  4. Practical Applications: Explore practical applications of the defined principles in various industries and scenarios, considering the unique challenges each may present.
  5. Group Exercises: Participate in group exercises and brainstorming sessions to develop practical strategies for applying the principles in real-world situations.
