July Event - Strategic Thinking - Vision Statement
This session will focus on helping every individual draw a “road map”. A road map reflects how a person is looking at their future. Participants will create a vision statement. Vision statements answer, “What is your dream?” no matter its size or indistinctness. A vision statement will help participants to identify their mission statement, which is how they will reach their dream. Finally, the last step will be about identifying the objectives and actions needed to achieve that dream, with each participant creating a Foot Print. By the end of the session, participants will have a life vision, have identified their passion, and the actions needed to achieve those goals.
