February Lunch Program - Put Your Mask on First: Ikigai and Your Career (Sponsored by LaGrange College)
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Speaker: Alice L. Ferris, MBA, ACFRE, Partner, GoalBusters LLC
Do you love your work? Are you great at being a fundraiser? But do you have a sense that you could be a little bit more content with how it all fits together? In Japanese culture, there is a concept called ikigai, loosely translated to "your life's purpose." While there are a lot of discussions about finding your why and your passion, in reality, it's not just about that. Whether you'd like to work on your own sense of personal leadership, or help coach someone else, this session will provide insight on the elements of ikigai, the ways to evaluate where you stand on each of the spheres of life, and tools to improve how your passion, vocation, and mission intersect.
