Rationale

Temple of Apollo

Ancient wisdom: KNOW THYSELF. It's still good advice.

Articulating a personal vision has numerous benefits. It can re-energize your efforts, inform your short-term and long-term plans, even improve your daily time-management skills. A personal vision statement reminds you of your purpose, helps you stay focused, and allows you to set goals.

Participants will reflect on personal identity and professional priorities through a series of writing exercises, culminating in a personal vision statement. At the end of the workshop, participants will have a clearer sense of who they are.
