More than 250 Network of Executive Women members and supporters learned to identify their best legacy -- and to start living it -- at the NEW Chicago spring networking event May 2, 2013 in Schaumburg, Ill.

NEW Chair Catherine Lindner, chief marketing officer for Argo Tea, helped attendees zero in on obstacles to a fulfilling life.

Lindner offered a few steps toward a more meaningful career:

  • Identify your values.
  • Align your choices.
  • Create a plan. "It’s not about tomorrow, it’s about a plan,” Lindner said. "Before you make a change, make a plan ― now.”
  • Seek help. "We need people in the world to give us honest feedback and you need to ask for it,” Lindner said.
  • Monitor progress.
  • Give it back or pay it forward.

"We should all be happy regardless of everything else,” Lindner said. "That is the goal.”

"One [thing Catherine said], I am holding close to heart,” noted NEW Chicago PR Chair Latoya R. Conners Gray, director, PMO, operations and business technology solutions, for Sears Holdings Corp. "Our values need to sync up with our work. When that happens we are most happy and more aligned with our belief system.”

Among the companies sending delegations to the event were Acosta Sales & Marketing, Altria, Catalina Marketing, Colgate-Palmolive, ConAgra Foods Inc., CVS/Caremark Corporation, Hillshire Brands, KeHE Distributors, Kellogg Company, Kraft Foods Group Inc., PepsiCo Inc., Sears Holdings Corporation and Walgreen Company.
