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 the Career Center for Working Professionals for this year's Designing Your Life Workshop on Thursday evening December 5th. This highly interactive and fun program will get you thinking in a new way about your work, your life and your future.

The 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 to introduce you to the concepts of 'design thinking' and how it can be leveraged to address 'wicked' problems and challenges. Before we're done, you 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?
