W1, Part I: Goals: Putting a Deadline on Your Vision | Setting, Monitoring & Evaluating Your Goals
People can easily understand the value and necessity of personal goals. Larger, more encompassing goals, however, are often met with doubt about feasibility and practicality or even whether they are needed at all. This workshop will examine how goals are already at work in our lives and what that means to us individually and collectively. We will use hands-on tools to illustrate the value of setting goals; the unintended consequences of not having goals and the importance of writing them down and committing to achieving them - No matter what!

W1, Part II: Improving Your Work: Real Ways to Put to Work What You've Learned
Practical ways to use goals in your work:
1. Getting clear. This activity is meant to help participants focus on their own work and how goals can help.
2. What did you come away with? Review and discussion of Session Notes. (Time will be allotted for workshop attendees that did not participate in first workshop to fill in Session Notes worksheets, which are the pages we are suggesting be part of the conference manual.)
3. Networking. Participants will be broken out into smaller groups and asked to meet at least 3 new people with the goal of finding out what that person does and where and then proposing ways that person can get on track to meet their goals.
4. Taking action: Gaining momentum now! Workshop will close with a yearly goal setting exercise. Participants will be asked to set at least one important goal that they will commit to making; they will monitor their progress on a monthly basis and finally commit to returning to the conference next year and to "report"
