“Taking this workshop with you changed my life. When I write my autobiography, I’m going to devote a chapter to you and how your DYL workshop changed the trajectory of how I was thinking about my career, life, and the choices I make.”
“This was one of the best (if not THE best) workshops I have ever attended, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Again: transformative.”
“I would definitely recommend this program for someone who is in a pivotal career or life moment. Special thanks to the faculty who were energetic and inspirational.”
DYL for All Digital Journey Details
Session 1: Building Your Compass
Kick off your DYL experience. Meet the instructors and your community, share your goals, commit to the norms for a life design community. You will be introduced to design thinking and the life design framework and start the conversation about the narratives that drive your life. Practice the unique way we will work together using digital tools and building community with Zoom collaboration.
Session 2: Getting Unstuck
Dig into balance and energy and how to get unstuck. Practice framing and reframing and how to further think like a designer. Consider how all your assessments inform three versions of your future.
Session 3: Imagining New Possibilities
Rejoin the community to share your assessments, versions of the future, and insights gained in the previous weeks. Together use generative listening and idea boards to design tangible ways to move forward and realize your future dreams.
Session 4: Designing Your Future
Get the support you need to continue your life design practice. Discover the science of change to set yourself up for success when you are making small or large life changes. Celebrate progress, share obstacles and get insight into how others have handled similar challenges.
What do people say about their DYL experience?
“The facilitation of these big ideas was fantastic, especially over Zoom. Participants were more engaged and focused during these sessions than I have ever experienced with a virtual course, as well as great ways to collaborate. This course was run by a stellar team!”
“The DYL for Everyone experience was mind blowing – the Odyssey exercise is a great way to imagine a future and to create it. The DYL is a great tool to reimagine and reinvent oneself and to create a future you want in an uncertain world.”
“I recommend taking this workshop if you are interested in learning how to design the life you truly want to live with interesting people you can learn from. It is great to learn the tools and ideate with others. I am excited to continue to use the tools I have learned throughout my life.”
“It’s helpful to dedicate time to thoughtfully think through how my life can come together.”
“So glad I took this class. It was very informative and provided skills that I can incorporate into my life right away. Thank you!”
