Discover Your Why!

Throughout much of our lives we struggle with “what” we should do and “how” we should do it.  “What will I be when I grow up?” “How will I earn a living?” “What do I do now?”  

“How will I go on now that this change has happened in my life?” In this workshop, participants will work together to ask and answer a different question.  “Why?” Discovering your personal “why” will bring clarity and impact to everything you do because it will enable you to walk in and toward your purpose.  

Adapting the Simon Sinek process called Find Your Why, participants will take the journey to discover what makes them feel fulfilled and what drives their behavior when at our natural best.
