LET YOUR VALUES LEAD THE WAY
Presented by Mayela Manasjan, CEO, The Manasjan Consultancy

Think of your life purpose. Why are you here and what do you want to accomplish? Which of your core values will guide your behavior as you attempt to live a purposeful life? Your core values reflect what is important to you and they provide the foundation for your decisions, goals, and life. When you align with your core values, you create more energy and a sense of fulfillment in your life because you’re leading from what is most important to you. In this workshop, we will identify your core values, define and connect with them, share and understand each other’s core values, and explore ways to manifest your core values in your daily life.
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM TAKING CONTROL OF YOUR WORKDAY
Presented by Andrew Fine, Community Services Manager, City of Mission Viejo

In this fast-paced session you will learn new techniques for getting more done in less time.  Strategies for time management, task prioritization, controlling interruptions, holding effective meetings, delegating and goal setting will be shared. Proven methods for increasing efficiency while simultaneously increasing work/life balance will also be highlighted. Participants will be able to directly apply concepts in this presentation to their work and home life and achieve positive results with little effort.

11:45 AM - 1:00 PM

BEYOND SMART – HOW VALUES BASED GOAL SETTING CAN HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS
Presented by Stephanie Smith, City Clerk, City of Murrieta

For decades people have been told to set SMART Goals: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time Based.  But if that was all it took to achieve the life of our dreams, why do we set the same goals over and over, or make the same New Year’s Resolutions time and time again?  Because our goals aren’t in alignment with our values.  Values are like directions on a compass, they are never ‘achieved’ but they can influence the quality and clarify the purpose of your life journey. Values are not something that you can store in a box and put away; we live with them from moment to moment; they are active and ongoing. This session will help participants clarify their core values and identify the “why” to their “what”.  When goals are assessed using our core values, they are 10x more likely to be achieved, and leave us more satisfied in the accomplishment.
4:15 PM
