At the root of what it means to live authentically is how well you know yourself. Living congruently with your values. What you dedicate your time to and what you live for.

 

Living authentically is the process of discovering what is important to you and why it’s important. This builds into learning to speak boldly about what moves you and to building a community of supporters who amplify and encourage you.

 

To get there, we need to take our first step. We need to invest in our growth.

 

What do you know about yourself, your interests, and what’s important to you? How does this connect to your values, purpose, and future impact in the world of work? How do you express what is important to you and engage in critical conversations with others?

Attend the Leadership & Career Summit to explore what it means to…

Live authentically in a complex world.

 

Friday February 9, 2018
