Live your life on purpose

Overview:

This Personal Development for Business workshop has been crafted for ambitious leaders who want to optimise their life, both in and out of the workplace, to move toward two great outcomes - maximised performance and deeper fulfilment in life.

The workshop is divided into 2 Modules - Goal Focused Thinking and Goal Focused Planning.

  • The Pyramid of Purpose

Why CEO's and Business Leaders Benefit:

Leaders live fast-paced, high-demand lives; constantly inputting and investing energy into their business, staff, clients, shareholders, systems; not to mention a multitude of personal life responsibilities. This workshop is a chance for leaders to take the time to pause, think, reflect and strategise; to intentionally invest in themselves and uncover a clearer sense of purpose, priority and drive. Forbes recently reported on Personal Development as “the driver of change” and “the key to unlocking the true greatness in every single one of our businesses today”. After all, as demonstrated by high performance research, when you grow, what you put your hand to grows also.

Takeaway Value:

The session is designed to leave delegates with strategic plans for improvement in areas of their business and personal life. Delegates will leave with a Live Your Life On Purpose workbook which they will have been completing in the session. The session is designed to leave gaps for completion later, giving delegates the opportunity to return to the workbook after the workshop. Some of the exercises in the workshop provoke returning to the workbook at scheduled times and also discussion with other people i.e. ‘goal buddies’.

Real World Applicability:

This workshop is designed for those in busy business leadership. It helps delegates think more deeply about their professional and personal priorities and create fresh strategies to help them attain their goals. The content helps delegates increase the probability of goal attainment and is applicable to leaders across all sectors and industries. The workshop allows individuals to apply the exercises to their own situations, thus making it highly personally applicable.

Expected Call to Action

Delegates will begin their own Top 3 project plans for the year ahead, including identification of Key People. Each Module ends with a brief reflection of learning and ‘Key Actions’. The workshop ends with a Launch Activator, which allows delegates to tabulate their own next steps, target dates and Key People - all with a view to aiding pursuit of purpose driven goals.
