Goal Setting

Join this session, initially created for the MASFAA Leadership Academy, as a first step towards setting goals for yourself. We see Financial Aid as a career and profession and with proper goal setting techniques we hope you gain the same enthusiasm to turn your job into a career. Setting Goals can be daunting – however by breaking them down into smaller pieces they can be attainable. The session will provide you with the steps to ponder, plan & prioritize both your professional and personal goals.
