Women In Business Seminar: Establishing Authentic Goals for 2020

About Your Seminar

Kick off 2020 right by developing, integrating, and honoring authentic personal and professional goals and intentions to carry out throughout the year.  This seminar is designed to be an inclusive, supportive environment to fully engage with your creativity. You will learn a new tool; how to be creative and flexible when goal setting. Through group discussion and hands-on projects we’ll aim to develop inspiration, motivation and clarity around your personal and business goals.

Takeaways from this seminar will include

  • New techniques to creatively create and set aspirational, personal, operational, and financial goals.
  • A Vision board (a collection of images culled from magazines and arranged together) to take home. This can help you uncover desires, make new connections and remind you of what you want in the New Year.
  • A Visual diagram (mind maps or flow charts) to take home. These are maps which include your top actionable goals for 2020 and concrete actions you can take to realize those goals in line with your vision.
  • A worksheet with your top actionable goals for 2020. This worksheet will be incorporated in the February 2020 WIB Seminar- Operational Goal Execution

*Registration for this event includes free lunch and childcare
