What you will learn:

What makes you successful?

Most people struggle to answer this question because the concept of "success" is exceptionally complex and individually defined. Still, society has for generations used the same three-pronged, one-size-fits-all approach to measuring the success of a human life: money, power, and honors. While this makes for a simple definition, it fails to accurately capture the unique and personal journey that each of us takes to find our success. Exacerbated by this age of technology and constant connectedness, the gap in societal and personal success measurement can lead many to worry that their lives aren't as successful as their peers'.

Using the science of success, this course offers a malleable blueprint that anyone can use to create a career that makes them feel happy, fulfilled, and ultimately successful. By the end, participants will have a refreshed perspective and a new path for their professional journey.
