YNPN invites you to join Sue Carter Kahl's "Discovering Your 'Deep Gladness'" workshop!

How do we work hard on causes we love and achieve excellence in our professional lives without burning out early or becoming one-hit wonders?

We so often focus on our professional development that our personal lives and development get bumped to the back burner. Many leaders seek a nonprofit career to marry their personal passions with professional aspirations. The upside is finding meaning in our work. The downside is that our work is more likely to become all-consuming.

Just as athletes require rest and recovery days in their training, so do nonprofit leaders. This workshop provides time and activities to reflect on creating more alignment between the diverse aspects of our lives. Participants will:

  • Identify their core values
  • Create guiding principles to serve as filter for future decisions
  • Discover ways to optimize their energy for what matters most
  • Explore where they can make changes to create more meaning in their lives

Frederick Buechner said, “Vocation is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” Come give yourself the gift of re-discovering your deep gladness.
