A Higher State of Career Consciousness: The Radical Shift from Success to Significance

Online • March 14, 2013

In this Jam Session, Emily Bennington will help you design your “best self” based on your unique virtues (what matters most), intentions (what actions are in alignment), and – finally – goals.

Thursday, March 14, 2013 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

Through the process of intense research on what separates successful women from not-so-successful women, Emily Bennington learned something really important about achievement. Specifically, she learned that everything we’ve been taught about what it takes to win – that is, by keeping a laser-focus on goals – is actually a recipe for unhappiness for most of us. In this Jam Session, Emily flips that thinking upside down, encouraging you to focus more on who you want to become over what you want to do. She will help you design your “best self” based on your unique virtues (what matters most), intentions (what actions are in alignment), and – finally – goals (what’s the general direction) so you can start responding to work and life from an empowered place, rather than simply reacting to the chaos that surrounds us all. Learn how to gain:

- A solid definition of the professional you want to be – including a virtues, intentions, and goals action sheet;
- A liberation from being totally goal-driven, “busy-ness,” and neurotic, unfruitful comparison traps;
- A new understanding of mindfulness as a career strategy that will enhance your leadership presence, enable you to make better on-the-spot decisions, and navigate work challenges with calm confidence.
