Matthew TempleDesigning Your Life Workshop

Still trying to figure out how your career and life fit together?  Ready to shake things up?  Are you willing to create 3 Odyssey Plans for the next 5 years in 15 minutes?  Please join us for our Designing Your Life Workshop.  This isn’t for the faint of heart.

This highly interactive workshop is based on the New York Times bestselling book Designing Your Life by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans. They have taken a design thinking approach to careers and life. Design thinking is a mindset that includes radical collaboration, reframing, curiosity, mindfulness of process, and a bias towards action. Designers build their way forward; they don’t wait for epiphanies on mountain tops (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

We will work on several exercises during the workshop. We will map your energy, to see what activities energize you and which ones drain you. How can you become more intentional about planning your week so you’re not drained by Friday? We will practice radical collaboration. How can you leverage people from different walks of life to help you generate new ideas and fresh perspectives? We will create three different Odyssey Plans. When will you start that company that you’ve been thinking about? When will you finally hike Mount Kilimanjaro? And, what about that marathon? The workshop is great for alumni starting their careers, trying to change careers, starting a company, trying to find more balance, moving into a senior role, or contemplating retirement.
