What Now?: A Guide To Your Next Phase In Life

This event is sold out.

At any age, you may ask yourself: “What’s my next step?

Whether you’re thinking of retirement, wondering about a potential promotion, or considering a career change, it is essential to know what you value. Going with the flow does not get you closer to what you want.

In this session, Dr. Klein will help you focus on your values (and these priorities do change over time) and stimulate thinking about what you want next in your life and career. Attendees will also uncover and address the obstacles to finding happiness.

Brought to you by the DeGroote School of Business and the Burlington Economic Development Corporation.
