Motivation vs Inspiration
For many of us, professional growth and development may lead to job satisfaction, happiness, and feeling fulfilled. Unfortunately, many of us chose our professions without really knowing what truly motivates and inspires us. Moreover, many of us fixate on aspects of our professions (i.e. salary, work environment, job security, promotion opportunities) that don't necessarily correlate with job satisfaction. In this class, the participants will learn a simple exercise where each participant will be able to sketch out and organize the different aspects of who they are in efforts to find their purpose or "calling" in their professional/personal lives and really get to the core of their true motivation.
