Watch Aligning Personal Values and Professional Goals Through Narrative
Chances are that you don't look at your career (or anything) quite the way you used to. Maybe you have new insights about your goals, or you just feel differently about what you want from a job, but you don't know where to start. This webinar helped participants craft a narrative that reflects their personal values and new perspective. 
Finding and expressing one's values in story form can help identify strengths, as you refocus and begin to identify and pitch yourself to prospective employers or clients. In this workshop, participants were introduced to a few basic storytelling principles like story arc, scenic, narrative detail, and theme.
