The 3Cs of Balance: Community, Career and Caring
Friday, July 10, 2020 (9:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (CDT)
Using the in-person workshop as its foundation, the 3Cs of Balance: Community, Career and Caring is also offered virtually. Please note: You'll be redirected to the Facilitators website to complete registration.
This workshop is designed around the ambitious young professional who can’t wait to be at the top of their game. But it’s not just their career they are concerned about – they want to be able to care for others, their community and themselves at the same time. Many individuals struggle to find balance, especially early in their career, instead of finding practical ways to achieve all of their goals. Today’s constantly changing and uncertain circumstances make this all the more true.
The three Cs – community, career and caring (for yourself and others) – are touch points for each aspect of life that help support mindful decisions for years to come. In this virtual workshop, participants will learn:
- How to integrate community involvement with commitments at home or work
- How to create space for self-care and caring for others
- How to recalibrate when one or more of the Cs is off balance
