Start the new year off with a guided process for reflecting on your work mindset for the year. What is most important to you? Is there something you have been doing in the past you want to change? Join us to learn more about creating a positive work experience for 2022. 
In this interactive webinar, Jessica Bacal, author and Director of Reflective & Integrative Practices at Smith, will lead you in out-of-the-box thinking about your unique path.
