"The Value Blueprint" Workshop - Registration NOW OPEN!
Are you ready to define and clarify your personal core values and strategically plan your year ahead?
Last week, I told you about a new three-part Workshop that I am launching to help us all start this new year with a sense of clarity and purpose. I am now ready to officially share all the details and open up registration!
Why the focus on values?
Our core values are the foundation of everything we do — both in work and in our whole lives. Yet most people have either spent little time thinking about their own values, or they simply have a list of words written on a sticky note (that might already be buried on your desk — yes, I’ve been guilty of that before).
Defining and aligning with our core values has never been more crucial, particularly in the workplace. Our lives and work are regularly filled with situations when we must quickly adapt to changes, often with huge responsibility involved. And in these moments, relying on a core set of values can make the difference between getting stuck and moving ourselves toward positive, meaningful change.
These values act as a reliable compass, guiding our decision-making, enhancing our overall job satisfaction, and fostering resilience when we face challenges or barriers. Aligning our work to our deeply-held values can lead to stronger relationships with colleagues, a more authentic leadership practice, and more purpose-driven planning for one’s own career.
Ultimately, the clarity provided by knowing our personal core values not only prevents burnout but also cultivates a sense of wholeness, purpose, and groundedness in the ever-evolving landscape of work.
And this isn’t just a core skill for us as individuals. When our organizations have a clear sense of core values, we can work together more effectively to do the kind of meaningful, human-centered work we love.
“The Value Blueprint: Mapping Your Path to Meaningful Work” is a 3-week virtual workshop where you will uncover and articulate your own personal core values, and leverage those values to strategically plan your year ahead.
The workshop will include individual reflection, small group breakout rooms, and large group discussions with exercises designed to:
Gain clarity on what truly matters to you.
Create a strategic blueprint for the year ahead aligned with your values.
Gain strategies for integrating your core values into your daily work.
Learn to prevent workplace burnout that often comes with values misalignment.
Connect with like-minded professionals, share insights, and build a supportive community committed to growth.
Your registration also includes:
reflection prompts, practical tools, and ongoing resources to support your values-driven practice beyond the workshop.
Each session in this series will be 90 minutes long and hosted through Zoom.
Registration for this workshop is limited to a small group, so that this time can include lots of discussion, reflection, sharing, and asking questions that are immediately relevant to each participant’s experiences and challenges.
I have been working with my co-director Bryna to develop this as a space that will ideally be for both early career professionals as well as those in leadership positions. We’ve found that making connections across individuals at different places in their careers can create a profound space for deeper personal learning and community building. There is a lot that we can learn from each through this process.
Workshop Dates and Times:
Thursday, 2/15, 1:00-2:30pm Eastern (10:00-11:30am Pacific)
Thursday, 2/22, 1:00-2:30pm Eastern (10:00-11:30am Pacific)
Thursday, 2/29, 1:00-2:30pm Eastern (10:00-11:30am Pacific)
You'll receive a Zoom link and follow up details shortly after you sign up. We are capping registration at around 20, so we can focus on getting to know and learn from each other, and build a community of changemakers that we can stay connected with after the workshop ends.
I’m really excited to launch this, and bring together an incredible group for this first-ever Value Blueprint workshop series.

Getting geared up for 2024
This Value Blueprint workshop is the beginning of what I am picturing as an especially meaningful year - both here at Agents of Change, and also in my work as a consultant, educator, and creative at Art Nature Place.
I am dedicating this year to the theme of grounding and the foundations that are core to meaningful changemaking and purpose-driven work in this world.
This will include other workshops throughout the year that dive deeper into foundational aspects of developing a healthier, more sustainable practice for work (and for life). It will also include a year of intentional work to grow this incredible community of changemakers here at Agents of Change.
Let’s kick off the year with some strategic thinking about values! Join the first-ever Value Blueprint workshop. Spaces are limited, so I encourage you to register soon if you are interested.
