2017 Goal Setting Lab, 1 – 5pm, Main Space

Join local facilitator, Trish Gillam for fun filled afternoon of exploring and designing a more meaningful 2017! Where do you want to be in December 2017? We will spend time reflecting and designing a year that fits the life you want to live. This will include a variety of games and activities to clarify goals and accelerate decision making. We will then spend some time creating action plans to help you follow through on your new goals. These hands on, group oriented activities are also a great way to build new connections with fellow Goal Setting Lab participants. You will leave this event with a personal action plan to help make the most of 2017 and hopefully new friends to support you with your plan.
