You spend more than half of your life at work. And you want your time to matter and your work to make an impact—not just pay the bills. So, how do you do more of the activities that energize you? How can you develop a career that plays to your unique strengths and honors your priorities? In this interactive workshop, based on the “Career and Life Vision” workshop taught at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, you will participate in individual and small-group exercises that will help you articulate your values, strengths, and priorities— who you are and what matters to you. You will spend time envisioning your desired future and explore the limiting beliefs that impede you from realizing that vision. You will learn three key strategies to test your options, allowing you to take action immediately and move toward more fulfillment. You can expect to leave this workshop with a framework and insights, a connection to others on a similar path, and a renewed conviction to building a career of meaning and impact.
This course is not a substitute for one-on-one career counseling. This course includes a non-refundable materials fee of $10 to be paid at the time of registration.
