'I highly recommend Design Your Best Year Yet! From the thoughtful prompts to the structure of the workshop, it was a unique and engaging experience. The energy was great and two hours went by before we knew it! The workshop helped me be more intentional in my reflections on what I had achieved last year and celebrate those achievements, and got me excited about what I can look forward to this year.'

Join us for Design Your Best Year Yet, an Upskill leadership workshop!

Leaders have a lot of responsibilities and competing demands for their time and energy. They can feel exhausted trying to keep up, disorganized and unable to focus, underpaid and undervalued, and disconnected from the people and things that really matter. Taking the necessary time to pause and reflect can be difficult, especially when we don’t know where to start. 

When we fail to reflect, we lose perspective, get stuck, and are less productive. We risk not showing up as our best selves for our teams and loved ones and doing our best work. 

We want you to be the designer of your life and kick off 2024 happy and strong. Because every leader deserves to thrive. And your mission depends on you and your team. That’s why we created a practical personal and professional development experience called Design Your Best Year Yet.  

In this workshop, we’ll guide you through a step-by-step process and equip you with actionable tools to look back at 2023, plan ahead, and intentionally achieve your goals in 2024. This workshop is for you if you lead teams as an executive, director, or manager and want to be more organized, productive, and motivated to achieve your goals. You can take this workshop with other leaders like yourself or you can join and have fun getting organized with your team.  
You will be able to:

  • Take stock and gain perspective on what you experienced in 2023
  • Celebrate your accomplishments and uncover what you’ve learned over the past year
  • Identify what you want to change to make better decisions and align with the life you truly want to live
  • Define your vision and set clear personal and professional goals to improve your focus and direction in 2024
  • Upgrade your systems to confidently act on your goals and track your progress throughout the new year

‘Thanks to the clarity I gained from this valuable workshop, I now feel confident that I am working towards the right goals for me. The process made it easier for me to get organized and break down my goals effectively. I also liked the pace of the workshop. It helped me to overcome my perfectionist tendencies and make accelerated progress in goal setting that I would not have achieved on my own. Additionally, the supportive group setting with other conservation leaders reassured me that I'm not alone in my journey.’

'I was really impressed by the Design Your Best Year Yet workshop. It was short and sweet and deeply impactful. This workshop connected with me in ways that goal setting books haven’t because it was guided, structured, and flowed. I received a variety of tools to capture my thoughts succinctly. I was surprised by what came up for me during the goal visualization exercise. The experience was lovely and it helped me to make important decisions. It gave me perspective and made me feel focused and empowered. I now know what to do to make this my best year!'

Ready to design your best year yet?
This is not your typical workshop. It is a learn and do together experience for busy leaders that is intimate, interactive, and focused entirely on you and your growth.

If reflection isn’t a regular part of your life right now, this is your wake-up call. It’s time for you to take a step back, reflect, and get excited about what’s next. This workshop will help you to hold yourself accountable to intentionally design an unforgettable 2024. By goal setting, you can identify what you want to achieve, and then put a plan in place to get there. 

Let's work together to design your best year yet! Your future self will thank you for it.

'Design Your Best Year Yet was amazing! I really enjoyed the reflective questions, hands-on exercises, and fun activities. The workshop helped me to create new goals and walk away more confident. I was so happy with the experience and results that I immediately signed up for a second workshop with Design Pathways called Tune into Your Truth. The workshops were complementary and I would recommend them to anyone looking to upskill their leadership.'
