Designing Your Life: News
We have all been asked, what do you want to be when you grow up? What are you going to do with the rest of your life? Whether you are 15 or 50 , figuring out what you want to do remains a fundamental challenge for many people. Often there is no "one right path/plan" but, instead, life is about growth and change. We can't always expect things to work out the way we think they will. What we need is a process - a design process for figuring out where we are, what we want and how we can build our way to a life we love.
Design Your Life (DYL) is a life and career exploration approach pioneered by Stanford Design faculty, and taught at Stanford by
Professors Bill Burnett and Dave Evans. Their book was also a #1 New York Times Bestseller. It provides a framework that gives you the time, space, tools, and community to navigate your biggest career and lifestyle questions with intention and clarity. Both the online workshops & live sessions, practical tools, original frameworks and peer-to-peer conversations will help you identify the core tensions between the lifestyle you want and the career trajectory that aligns your values, interests, and skills.
By the end of this workshop, you will have an awareness of what it is you want, you’ll have designed a vision for what that looks like, and you’ll have an actionable plan to begin to take steps every day to get you closer to alignment between your career and your life.
