"Not all who wander are lost," they say, but for the great majority of us, having a road map for the future is a key element to well-being and success, however we choose to define it.  This means setting goals for ourselves, and finding ways to achieve them.   It's simply a fact: when people have goals to guide them, they are happier and achieve more than they would without having them.

 

While it's not a good idea to try to change everything at once, you can set goals in virtually any domain of your life, from your wardrobe to your workplace.

 

If you would like a fresh perspective on setting goals, then join K.C. Gott, founder of HerStory Coaching.  Gott, a certified professional and holistic health coach, a registered yoga teacher, and a personal growth junkie, is presenting a Women’s Personal Enrichment Lunch Break Seminar entitled “Goals with Soul.”   Scheduled for Tuesday, June 21, 2016, start time is noon.  Location is the Global Understanding Video Conference Room, Campus Center Building, room 233. 

 

Most people who are goal-oriented have heard of S.M.A.R.T. Goals.  K.C.’s workshop is not that.  Rather, “goals with soul” will ask you to rethink your relationship with goals altogether.  What motivates your goals?  Do your goals feel like achievements you “should” be reaching or do they feel like a gift to yourself?  Instead of more “self-discipline” and “willpower” lectures, you’ll learn a kinder and more sustainable way to set yourself up for success.  K.C. shares with attendees a goal-setting process which allows a healthier, happier, more liberated you to emerge.

 

K.C. earned her master of arts degree from ETSU in Professional Communication and Women’s Studies.  She completed Tara Mohr’s Playing Big facilitator training in 2015.  In addition to coaching, she currently teaches communication classes in the Department of Communication and Performance at ETSU.  You can find her online at www.kcgott.com.

Reservations are required .  To reserve a space for K.C. Gott’s Women’s Personal Enrichment Lunch Break Seminar, contact the Women’s Resource Center at 423-439-5772.  

This lunch break seminar is free and open to the public.

Programs & Services

The Women's Resource Center facilitates programming dealing with an extensive variety of issues and concerns affecting women. Our goal is to enrich and enlighten women on the issues confronting them. The Center is dedicated to providing seminar and lectures series that explore a wide spectrum of concerns.

Although programs are designed to enrich and enlighten women, they are not limited to this group. Many seminars and lectures will interest the entire campus, community, and regional populations.
