ABOUT THE CLASS:
Great leaders and agents of change have been driven by a clear and compelling mission. In order to accomplish lasting change, and manage the adversity that comes with it, our purpose needs to be strong and we need to attract like-minded people to join us.
The Power of Purpose is a practical, interactive program that helps you define what is truly important in your life, the obstacles in your way, and the resources you already have available to overcome them.
How to craft a Personal Mission Statement! During the class, participants will start defining the ideal shape of their lives. They will have the opportunity to collaborate and problem solve obstacles with each other and the instructors. Participants will leave the program with a first draft of a Personal Mission Statement, the tools to keep improving it, and a vision for how best to express the mission in the work they do.
WHO THIS CLASS IS FOR:
- Social entrepreneurs and non-profit leaders
- Change agents and activists
- People want to make a positive difference in the world
