Hard work, dedication, and luck aren't enough to give you the career of your dreams. It takes intention and strategy to succeed on your own terms. As time passes, it's important to revisit your aspirations to ensure that they still fit the life you want. This workshop will help you refresh your career strategy so that it's perfect for the person you are today – with your values, gifts, hopes, and dreams.
By the end of the session, participants should be able to:
- Understand how a values-based career strategy can increase both career fulfillment and success
- Move past the SHOULDS that may be holding you back
Assess and grow your network for the career that you’re building – not just where you are now.
