Goals, Values and Purpose

BACK TO PROGRAM OVERVIEW

 
 

Establish an inner polestar for life and leadership.

Purpose and values are the foundation for great leadership, as well as for pursuing a life well lived. They illuminate our life journey by giving us direction, clarity and meaning. But we rarely step back to explore the hard questions at the core of pursuing a purpose-driven life: How do our personal values relate to our outer goals and aspirations to succeed in life and leadership? How can we establish our life purpose? What, for us, is an ideal life? How do we integrate our personal values and purpose into our role as a leader? What if the goals of our organization, or the responsibilities of our role, are not aligned with our values and purpose? Are there gaps between what we value and what we are doing today—and if so, how can these gaps be closed?

This Master Class helps participants tackle these pivotal questions so they can emerge with a concrete understanding of who they are, what they stand for, where they want to go, and what changes they need to make in their current direction in life and leadership to align with their chosen purpose.
