Storytelling to Find Your Why and Envision Your Aspirations

November 12, 2020 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm EDT

Virtual Zoom Workshop with Preregistration 

What is your “why”? What motivates you in your personal and professional life? What future do you wish to create? How do you wish to tell the story of the work that you engage in? This workshop will help you leverage the power of storytelling to tap into your passions and purpose and unleash your best self. Your story is important and meaningful. By reflecting on your experiences and envisioning your professional and personal growth in the form of a story, you will be able to align your goals, your trajectory, and your legacy with the story you want to live!
