Living on Purpose: Session 1

In this workshop you'll explore frameworks and practice tools that help increase a living sense of purpose in your life. Key activities will include unearthing your core values, examining your unique strengths, connecting authentically with peers around common life questions, and designing purpose projects to help you prototype a new way of living. This workshop is appropriate for graduate students of all disciplines and at any phase of your Stanford journey.

Living on Purpose: Application Deadline

Explore and practice essential tools for living a life of authenticity, connection, and impact.

Graduate school is a time of powerful academic, professional, and personal exploration. It's also the launching pad for the next phase of life. However, how many of us set aside time and energy to reflect with depth on our life purposes? Living on purpose, so to speak, doesn't occur accidentally. Instead, it necessitates intentional cultivation of mindsets and skills that amplify our lived experiences of authenticity, connection, and impact.

Negotiation Matters: Session 2

Mastery of negotiation is a life skill. We all negotiate every day with colleagues, bosses, partners, friends, clients, and many others. This workshop is a dynamic mix of theory, demonstration, skills exercises, and role play practice intended to increase your confidence and effectiveness in any negotiation you undertake.

Participation in both sessions is required. The workshop is highly interactive and experiential and participants are expected to be on time and prepared for each session.
