Actualize Your Purpose: A Workshop & Discussion Series on Improving Your Well-Being

Actualize Your Purpose: A Workshop & Discussion Series on Improving Your Well-Being


The pandemic has fundamentally altered the way we work: remote and hybrid environments, students and colleagues in greater need of support, and demands for better work-life balance. This is the perfect time to take stock, check in with yourself and your goals, and start creating work habits that work for you.

Join us online for an interactive workshop and discussion that will help you to refocus your time, energy, and future work in realizing your purpose and professional vision. You’ll begin the workshop by assessing the current state of your well-being and reflecting on the factors that most contribute to it. You’ll then explore to what extent inherited norms shape your definition of success, so that you can create your own definition of success based on your values and the impact you want to have in the world. Finally, you’ll document a practical and tangible plan that outlines the goals and tasks you’ll need to craft the meaningful life and career you desire.

How it Works

This series consists of a selection of workshops and discussions. The 3-hour virtual workshops will walk you through aligning your values, priorities, and work. During the workshop, you will identify values and priorities, audit your calendar, identify goals, and begin to develop practices and strategies for how you can actualize your purpose in your day-to-day life. The 1-hour discussions, meanwhile, have been designed to help you further this work and deepen your self-knowledge by connecting you with your peers, as well as our coach, to share and reflect on these practices and strategies.

You may choose to sign up for one or more of these sessions. The virtual workshops, taking place in April and September, will have the same agenda and content, however, attending the workshop more than once could be beneficial for helping you to refine your approach to actualizing your purpose as you progress in your own personal journey of well-being. If you attended prior versions of this workshop, you are welcome to attend any of the subsequent discussions that take place in June and November.
