Thanks to our partner INSEAD, WIL Europe is offering you the opportunity to join for a Webinar on ‘Designing Your Career’, led by Dave Evans, lecturer and creator of one of Stanford University’s most popular elective courses and author of New York Times #1 bestseller Designing Your Life).

Deciding on your next career step is never easy. Being told to follow your passion typically makes it worse. Most people find career designs hard to make: we don’t know enough about our options; we don’t know the implications of our decisions (except that they could be irrevocable) and, very often, our preferred choice is difficult or impossible.

The solution proposed by Dave Evans is to apply design thinking to career management. Designers wrestle with these kinds of ambiguous problems every day. Instead of getting wrapped up in over-analysis, designers learn to solve problems by asking questions and building protypes. Dave Evans has spent a decade teaching life design skills to his Stanford students and he will share in this webinar key steps in the process:

  • Reframing - How stepping back to examine your assumptions can unlock the way to a solution
  • Curiosity – why a “try stuff” mentality is critical to revealing opportunities
  • Prototyping – how to get a feel for different career paths before committing yourself
  • Accepting the process – understanding that prototypes are built to be imperfect; that failure is a feature not a bug
  • Asking for help – how to ask and who can help you most.

All participants receive:

  • Access to the webinar and the chance to ask Dave Evans questions live
  • Video recording for download after the event
  • Access to bonus materials resource pack.
