Work as Inspiration
Monday, December 10th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Jenn Baron and Allison Holzer
Join us for an introduction to the concept of inspiration - how it works and how/why to use it intentionally and strategically in your life. We believe that work – which we define as “how we influence and impact others in the world” - is a core source of inspiration, energy, and fulfillment. Moreover, we believe that inspiration can be infused into your work. A powerful, two-part way to transform work into inspired work is by: 1) understanding yourself (strengths, interests, and aspirations) and what we call your inspiration DNA, and 2) consciously expressing your inspiration DNA in your daily life.
