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 course, you will participate in individual reflections 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 seven strategies that will enable you to take action immediately on a specific career and life project and move toward more fulfillment. You can expect to leave this course with a roadmap and insights, a connection to others on a similar path, and a renewed conviction to building a career of meaning and impact.
