Presentation: Designing Your Work Life, How to Thrive and Change and Find Happiness at Work

As companies evolve to be more and more nimble and shift faster and faster to meet changing markets, the workplace is less and less predictable. Increasingly, it’s up to workers to define their own happiness and success in this ever-moving landscape. People need tools to invent their own success – over and over – as they change and grow as humans. (Doubly so for the growing ranks of us who are self-employed.)
By leveraging proven design thinking principles used by leading companies such as IDEO, IBM and Apple, you will learn how to apply that same methodology to design your work life to create more meaning and build more joy into each workday.

In this presentation, you will learn:
– introduction to design thinking
– how to be the designer of your life and your job and with design thinking, you can make it better.
– ways to change how your boss reacts to you,
– change your experience of work altogether and
– maybe even have an impact on your company’s culture.
