It can be difficult to know where to focus your efforts when you might not even know what you really value. Deciding on the next steps in life, the next project to take on, the next job to apply to can be overwhelming. You can make that easier by taking time to think about what matters to you and how you can use that to change the way you work and live. In this lesson you will:

• Learn some of the basic research behind values, burnout, and
psychological safety
• Complete a Values Affirmation Exercise
• Brainstorm ways to incorporate your values into your life

You will leave the session with a better understanding of what is important to you, how you can use that information when interacting with others, and how you can put those values to work!
