In this 2-hour session, work through techniques and exercises that actually help you get concrete answers to these big questions of adulthood: Where do I want to be in 5 years? What is my personal vision in life? What are my values? What are things I can’t see myself without? What are some red lines I don’t want to cross in my career?
