Innovate You: Designing a Life of Meaning and Value

Are you working towards a life that is full of activities or a life that is full of meaning and value? Do you feel you are making a significant contribution in our ever-changing world? What if you could tackle your problems and design a well-lived, meaningful and significant life relative to your work, your health, your play, and your relationships?

Designers create experiences and products and solve problems using a methodology called design thinking. You can employ the same methods used to create amazing products to your life! You can take control of your life, live with intention, reinvent yourself and ensure that life does not just happen to you.

This session will explore why many of our deep-rooted beliefs about life are dysfunctional and limit our success, and it will reveal the mindsets, skills, frameworks, and tools needed to tackle your biggest design challenge. It will highlight resources for enhancing self-awareness so that you can better understand who you are, what you believe, and what you do. You will learn how to innovate you and unlock the secret to building a life of meaning and significance.
