Day 1: The Role of the Individual**

Taught by: Rick Alexander

** Rick's recording stopped a few minutes in so this live recording is unavailable. He will be rerecording in the next week at which point, the video will be emailed to you.

In this workshop, Rick is going to walk through the steps that research has shown are necessary to cultivating a meaningful life. At each step in the process, there will be exercises as well as Q&A to ensure that the information is tangible and easily applied to your life. In addition, we will look at some of the major forces that tend to block our path to meaning and fulfillment including fear, imposter syndrome, and lack of direction. We will end with 'applied fear work', i.e. meditations and exercises that will allow you to continue to engage with the process long after the workshop ends.

Figure out what you value

Discern your work in the world

Move through the obstables that keep you from these things

Day 2: The Role of the Leader

Taught by: Aaron Guyett

Ready to be a leader of leaders? "The Role of the Leader" is Aaron Guyett's workshop to help you create a systematic approach to intentional leadership. It would be difficult to lead anyone, let alone yourself if you don't know where you are and where you are going. If you are looking to clarify your position and empower others to a vision that is greater than yourself, check out "The Role of The Leader." Instead of telling you what kind of leader you need to be, Aaron Guyett wants to give you the tools to discover your leadership potential, as well as bring that leadership potential out in others. Interact with Aaron as he teaches and answers your questions on the adventure that is becoming a leader of leaders.

Belief drives purpose

Purpose drives values

Values drive vision

Vision sets intentions

Walk it out in chaos

Day 3: The Art of Adversity

Taught by: Jeff Depatie

Buddha declares, "all life is suffering." Ryan Holiday wrote, "the obstacle is the way." William Shakespeare is paraphrased as saying "let me embrace thee sour adversity, for wise men say it is the wisest course."

What is actually meant by these words? How do you navigate this struggle in the modern world? In this workshop, Jeff will teach you what is happening physiologically as you move through adversity with intention. You will learn practical tools and newly refined formulas to conquer a powerful new year and beyond.
