Ready to get creative with your life?

 

You are experiencing some kind of change by ending a cycle and facing a new beginning, where you need to make important decisions about your future, such as:

 

  • You finish high school soon, and you don't know where to go next. Should you go to University? Or take a break and have a sabbatical year somewhere else? Or even start your own business?

 

  • Perhaps you are almost graduating from Uni and wondering what would be the right next step in your career.

 

  • Or maybe you are starting to contemplate the idea of buying your first home, getting married, or starting a family.

 

  • You might be full of ideas, not knowing what to choose.

 

  • Or a bit stuck, wondering: Ok, I've accomplished all of this... and now what?

 

Unlike most subjects that focus primarily on teaching replaceable skills, the effectiveness of the Life Design approach is that it guides you to develop your personal attributes, the essential skills of our century. 

 

In the Life Design Experience Online Program, you will learn how to:

 

  • Bring curiosity into your life

  • Reframe your challenges and preconceived beliefs

  • Brainstorm new possibilities

  • Open yourself up for seeing opportunities everywhere

  • Find coherence between who you are and what you do

  • Become willing to prototype and experiment with new ideas

  • Have a bias to action towards new experiences

 

It's a combination of design tools and mindsets that, once learned, can be applied over and over again to any situation throughout your life.

Our program is based on the Life Design Method, taught at the most popular class of the Stanford Life Design Lab, and on the number-one New York Times bestseller book, Designing Your Life - how to build a well-lived, joyful life. 

 

The Life Design approach, combined with key personal development tools and supported by mind-body connection exercises, is what makes the Life Design Experience Online Program so unique.

 

Life Design follows the Design Thinking process, also known as Human Centred Design.

 

Design Thinking is a design methodology that provides a solution-based approach to solving problems creatively within companies and startups. This approach encourages organisations to focus on the people they create for and leads to products, services and internal processes centred on human needs.

 

The core of Design Thinking is to know the questions and come up with innovative answers that are executable. These are simple mindset changes or different ways of asking questions, which lead to a new way of looking at problems and challenges.

 

In Life Design, the human being for the process being developed is YOU, and the creative result is YOUR LIFE. 

 

Applying Design Thinking methodology to your life allows you to generate desirable solutions to the problems and challenges you face whenever needed.

 

Life Design Experience Online Program is a self-paced 6-module course that promotes self-exploration and action.

 

All modules are delivered with a variety of exercises that will guide you through the Life Design process while building your confidence to make inspired choices and find creative ways to live the life you want to live.

 

More than learning the process of designing your life itself, you will embrace a way of living that gives you courage and resilience to face challenges along the way and finding a balance between your critical and creative thinking.

 

The Life Design Experience Online Program will help you:

 

  • Become clear about what really matters to you

  • Know who you are and where you want to be

  • Create an action plan to start taking the next steps, from where you are right now

  • Connect with like-minded people to share experiences and keep you accountable

What our students say

"I attended the Life Design 2 day workshop in February and loved it. The workshop made me look at my life from another perspective and delve deep into what I want out of my life, what is blocking me and what I need to change to get there. To be able to identify this and workshop it with others to validate your direction or get a different perspective was invaluable. Since completing the workshop I can now ensure that my energy is focussed in the right areas to grow personally and professionally. I would recommend this course to anyone who is seeking direction or clarification on where they are headed and why. Well done Fabio and Helena and thank you for your guidance and wisdom."
