Setting Ambitious & Creative Goals
About this Webinar
December 11, 2018 at 3:00PM EDT
Women often sell themselves short—what Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In calls the “leadership ambition gap.” In this interactive workshop, we break down why that gap exists, and how women can move past the obstacles to set and achieve more ambitious goals for themselves. This workshop creates a motivating space for workshop participants to investigate what being more ambitious about their career goals would mean for them—and to leverage both their left and right brain in aiming higher. At the same time, they’ll learn to avoid burnout by working smarter not harder and building lasting value for themselves through the investments of their time. Participants will set next-level career goals for themselves and learn practical strategies for achieving them, marshaling the support of others. This session is open to people of all genders, but will focus on some unique challenges women can face.
- Session attendees will learn three exercises for setting ambitious and creative goals
- Session attendees will be able to invest their time more strategically for more payoff in career growth
- Session attendees will learn how to translate goals into week by week progress steps
