Answer the Big Question of What Really Matters in Work and Life Decisions
Imagine having one of the most profound conversations in your life: ?This is what I stood for, believed in, struggled with, and accomplished. This is my life?s work, and what I want to be remembered for.? Wow! Wouldn?t it be great to experience such intense clarity! That?s what?s behind best-selling author Bill Jensen?s latest book, What Is Your Life's Work?: Answer the Big Question About What Really Matters?and Reawaken the Passion for What You Do.
Bill asked thousands of mothers and fathers and caring teammates to write letters to those they love and describe the legacy they?re leaving behind by the choices they?ve made. In this discussion, Bill will expose the raw truths we?ve all experienced, the personal frailties and mistakes we?d like to hide, as well as the proudest achievements we?d like to celebrate.
Bill will share with you what others just like you figured out:
? How to find and leverage the five distinct discoveries you will make about your life?s work
? How to deal with the daily grind and still pursue your dreams
? How to view and address the specific challenges and work-life issues faced by women, Boomers, and new graduates
?As well as sharing with you the coaching he provided to help people figure things out for themselves.
If you work, this is a must-attend event! It just might jumpstart some of the most important conversations you will ever have with those you love and care about.
