Do you have interests, values, and strengths that you would like to integrate more into your life? Do you have expertise you are building but need to know where to focus and what opportunities to take action on?
This Design Thinking program helps you to reflect and gain insight from your key life experiences, identify what authentically makes you at your best, and transform that wisdom into a design for your life that integrates the best of you professionally, personally, and academically.
Through a system of activities, you will create a strategy for the path you will create for your future based on what you have learned. You will not only be more clear about what it is you want to do, but you will create ideas for experiences or steps to take to immediately move in your focused direction.
You don't have to have it "all figured out" to do this program. This program helps you to figure it out. Do you feel somewhat unsure what your next step is for your career and life? This is a next step and a path that you can create.
Do people keep asking you “so what do you want to do?” and you don't have a clear answer for that question?
Are there are a lot of things that you “want” to do, but just not sure how to go about it or how to get there. Try using a design thinking approach for your career and life to create your own unique path.
This program was designed for college students but is applicable to anyone who would like to reflect to design their own unique professional life.
