I attended the Women's Leadership Symposium last summer and Dr. Rock gave a very candid talk about her journey from childhood to adulthood. She talked about gifts/talents, passions, plans and the support you need to reach success and I wanted to learn more. I appreciated the fact that she kept it very real (ups and downs). Change is difficult even painful at times but I am ready to be a proactive leader that brings change in my own life while at the same time being and example to others.
I am taking this class because I am at a crossroads in my life. The current career path I am on is not bringing me much personal happiness. I took my first graduate level course last semester and even though I felt good about my performance, I felt drained, unbalanced and LOST by the end of it. I did not have the same energy or oomph I did when I started school in the fall of 2008 to take another class in my field. My soul is a bit restless.
