Designing your life is not a short-term project, it’s an on-going career design and life design project. By learning and applying five mindsets from the book Designing Your Life, authored by Dave Evans and Bill Burnett, coaching group members will use practical activities in the book to identify possible career futures and design their way forward, while identifying what a well-designed next chapter in their lives looks like for them. The book, homework activities from the book, and group discussions, held virtually via Zoom, are designed to help coaching group members to learn how to better navigate life’s big moment decisions —it will be fun and full of surprises!
This coaching group is for any international graduate student from any college within Northeastern University who identifies as a woman and is seeking to immerse herself in a career design experience fall semester.
We will be using the book, Designing Your Life by Bill Burnett & Dave Evans. *Please get a copy before our 2nd meeting (Feb 4th)!
