How do you move forward in career and life transitions when you are feeling stuck? Fear of failure & indecision can hold us back from taking that next step with confidence. Designing Your Life is a fresh approach from Stanford University using design-thinking principles traditionally applied in product design to design the next chapter of your life story. This step-by-step design process pushes you to re-frame assumptions and engages you in an iterative process of curiosity and creative problem solving to build your way forward at any age.
You Will Learn How to:
• Assess your current situation and take stock of what gives you energy & engages your strengths
• Brainstorm to generate new ideas
• Prototype the next chapter to test what works for you before you fully commit to any transition
