Designing Your NEXT Life is focused on Kenan-Flagler alumni who want to reassess and envision what the trajectory of their lives can be. According to research around “The Great Resignation,” one of the Covid-related impacts on the nature of work has been that professionals now, more than ever, want to pivot or accelerate their careers into work that is both meaningful and in line with their ultimate life goals. This workshop is intended to help them do just that! Based upon the bestselling book, Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived and Joyful Life, this interactive session will lead participants through a series of experiences in a sequence that is intentionally designed to increase awareness of what they truly want and strategies to obtain such aspirations.
