Find Your Why
What is it that gets you excited to start each day, and why should anyone care? Simon Sinek began the idea of creating your personal why (startwithwhy.com). Every person has a why: a purpose, a cause or a belief that is the origin of our passion and inspiration. You may not know yours yet or how to express it in words, but we guarantee that you have one. If you would like help in formulating your why, this workshop will help get you started.
Everyone can explain what they do and some can even explain how they do what they do, but very few can explain why they do what they do. The personal why is the purpose or cause that inspires us when we are at our very best; it’s what makes us get out of bed in the morning.
In this workshop, participants will walk through a series of collaborative exercises based on the book, Find Your Why: A Practical Guide for Discovering Purpose for You and Your Team by Simon Sinek. We will start with a discussion around the importance of having a defined personal Why, and how knowing and living by our Why can help us perform better and lead more fulfilling lives. Participants will leave this workshop with a clear picture of how they can live out and communicate their personal Why.
