Kick off 2021 by attending webinars designed to motivate you for the year ahead and structure your goals. You’ll learn about tried and true mindsets for weathering the storm and taking control of what you can. These webinars are presented as part of The First 90: A New Year’s Challenge to Make 2021 Count.

In this 90-day habit formation challenge participants pick one or two areas of focus and join a cohort of like-minded colleagues. Over the course of three months, we will break down big goals into daily actions with the help of UW experts and Whole U partners, and provide the social support and accountability trackers to help you maintain your focus.

Goal Setting: Creating what you already have with Lee Davis

Setting goals, following through with them, and facing the barriers that keep you from accomplishing goals is one of the most important steps to conquering a new year resolution and preparing for a successful year to follow.

In this workshop, you will be given a comprehensive definition and example of the mechanics of goal setting.  How to create goals, how to spot check your goals, and how to see your goals through completion are just a few of the major themes that will be covered.  Additionally, strategies on remaining emotionally resilient during tumultuous times, remaining rooted during change, and increasing focus during times of uncertainty!

This webinar is 90 minutes long and is being hosted twice. Once on Friday, January 8 and a second time on Friday, January 22. Both events are hosted on Zoom from 1-2:30 p.m. We hope that you will be able to join us at either session!
