Girl Boss Boot Camp: Find Meaning at Work

Girl Boss Boot Camp: Find Meaning at Work

Last week was a big one for the Young Professionals of NYC. We hosted our first-ever Girl Boss Boot Camp. Girl Boss Boot Camp is our new series of interactive professional development workshops that give you life hacks to put into action tomorrow and skills-building that will make you shine at work.

Our first-ever GBBC was all about finding meaning at work and starred Jenny Maenpaa, founder of Forward in Heels Consulting. Jenny took us on a journey of self-discovery while we bravely narrowed down our many values to 3 core ones. It was hard to say goodbye to so many elements that are part of our lives, but she got to our true self and with this information we were able to create our own mission statements, focusing on why we were doing what we doing before jumping into the what.

By the end of the night we had made new friends, put down a fair amount of wine and rice crispy snacks (yes, what?) and developed action plans for getting to that life that aligns to our true self. While a couple of us validated that we were already on the right track, many of us realized we were not even close, and EVERYONE in the room left ready to make some degree of change at work - either within or outside their current role or company.

Mission accomplished!

We will be holding GBBC once a quarter so keep an eye out for our next installment, and in the meantime we hope to see you at one of our juicy Instagram-Worthy June events: Escape the Room (6/6) and our Pre-Summit Young Professionals event (6/20).
