Goal

The “Visioning Day” is a time for young professionals to tell their personal story to each other in a fun, safe, relaxed home environment. In the process of sharing their story, people can hear more clearly what makes their set of values, experiences, and goals unique to just them. This clarity leads directly to the goal of this workshop: a personalized framework of values and criteria to be used in goal-setting (short-term) and vision casting (long-term) that integrates a person’s personal and professional needs.
