About The Course

Life Designing has it's origins in the well established methodology of Design Thinking, a human-centred design process to create innovative solutions. It's action-orientated, forward thinking, creative and fun.

Ever wondered why designers embrace challenges? Why they thrive on unsolved questions, uncertain outcomes and out-of-the-box solutions?

It's because they know that challenges and uncertainty equals growth and infinite opportunities.

In this course you'll learn how you can turn challenging situations into opportunities and tailor-made solutions.

In other words, you'll learn how to become a designer.

A Life Designer.

What You'll Learn

  • Learn the principles and the steps of the Life Designing process
  • Learn how to think like a Life Designer and turn your limiting beliefs into inspiring beliefs
  • Learn how to behave like a Life Designer
  • Discover a powerful tool how to analyze your current life situation and how to adjust and shape your future life design
  • Learn a different approach to generating ideas for your future
  • Understand how you can "test drive" those ideas to see if they truly fit you

This course is a combination of a self paced online learning experience, designed over the course of 6 weeks, and your active participation in our "Life Designing Classroom".

In our classroom, a closed Facebook group, I encourage you to post your comments after each completed week, so I can follow your progress, interact with you, and tailor my weekly Facebook Lives to questions and concerns that I see in our group.

At the end of this course you'll

  • have the awareness of your own limiting beliefs and where you've been blocking yourself in the past
  • have the tools & practice how to reframe those limiting beliefs into inspiring beliefs to support your journey
  • have the clarity about your current life situation & understand why and in which areas you need to make certain concessions or adjustments
  • develop ideas what these changes could look like
  • know how you can "test drive" those ideas
  • have a check-list how to initiate the desired life changes & how to stay on track in the future

"It was 2017, and I was in a period of transition and or transformation.Then we had the session with Yvonne and I was like Bam!

The methodology was simple and easy to adapt. Yvonne gradually brought us to the realization that the power to reshape or reshuffle lay with us and we did not need permission to change. I had the opportunity to create the things I wanted to fit me and work for me, not the other way around. Truly a remarkable experience."

Hi. I'm Yvonne Hendrych, Founder of Workinbalance & Passionate Life Designer.

One thing I'm even more passionate about is encouraging and empowering other people to become Life Designers. And to encourage them to design a life for themselves that is aligned with their values, needs and aspirations. In other words, a life they truly love.

Experiencing the challenges of a life situation where I questioned everything, personally and professionally, I decided to take matters in my own hands and stop waiting for someone else handing me a blueprint for my future.

I headed on a venture of self-exploration, volunteer work experiences and learning opportunities to gain clarity for myself; and, at the same time and without realizing at first, to start building my new career.

After in-depth training in “Social Innovation Management” and “Life Designing” and after gathering plenty of real life feedback about this new career path, I was ready to take the leap.

Fast forward 3 years and 400+ students who have gone through my workshops, trainings and coaching. And after building strong and fruitful relationships with my clients & partners like the European Parliament, the Amani Institute, Escola Polifonia, MaturiJobs and others, I'm more than ever convinced of the impact of my work and of Life Designing.

"Participating in Life Designing was the final nudge I needed to initiate what I truly wanted for my professional life.

I learned how to test drive all possibilities and that failing or making a mistake is not a problem. Even better, the faster I “fail” the faster I will get feedback about how to move forward.

After Life Designing, I was finally able to do the life changes I wanted and today I feel light and happy with my choices. Thank you so much, Yvonne"

Frequently Asked Questions

Life Designing? Never heard of it before! How can I be sure it's right for me?
You'll only know by trying out. 100% risk free, of course. Join this program for up to 30 days and dive into the lectures and live sessions. If you feel it's not for you, you'll get your money back. 100%. No questions asked.
I want to change my job but feel completely lost. Will I have clarity about my next job at the end of the course?
Changing a job or even a career takes time. Take my word for it. And by all means you want to avoid quick fixes that don't bring the desired changes. This course will provide you with the necessary clarity about your current life situation in a holistic and connected way. This is precondition to understand where you have to work on the big picture. It will also provide you with the tools how to turn this picture into reality, one step at a time. And it will show you how you can test your way forward and allow yourself to "feel" into different future possibilities. In other words, this course is a precondition to allow your answers to show up in the months to follow and gain the necessary clarity and confidence that you're building a life that truly fits you.
I'm not in a moment of major changes in my life but curious about Life Designing? Is this course right for me?
Yes, by all means. It's always the right time to press pause and re-connect with ourselves, our needs, our dreams and aspirations. And it's always the right time to learn new tools that empower us to design our way forward, with confidence and a positive perspective.
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts the minute you enrol and ends when you feel ready. 6 weeks is my suggestion but feel free to take as much time as you need.
Do I get access to all the course material the minute I enrol?
The course is structured into 6 weeks of learning experience. I've designed it in a way to make sure you dedicate at least one full week for each content block. Too often we tend to rush through content without leaving any space for reflections or inspiration. So your course material will be published week by week and you'll be notified by mail when the new content block is ready and waiting for you.
How much time do I need to invest for each week of the program?
Approximately 2-3 hours per week on average. But it really depends on how much time you want and you can dedicate to each of the exercises and to your interaction in our Facebook group.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
So everyone can start and finish at a different moment? How can this be coordinated in the Facebook group interactions?
Joining the closed Facebook group is like joining your new tribe of like-minded people. As in real life there're always people further ahead of us that inspire us. And at the same time we inspire others by being exactly where we are right now. So you'll for sure benefit from the diversity of the interaction and Facebook Lives. If it's something you already learned, enjoy the recap. If you're not yet there, listen with an open heart and an open mind and I'm sure you get some great insights for the lectures to come.
Will I be on my own on this learning experience?
Of course not! The online course material is just one part of the training. We have our classroom - a closed Facebook group - where I encourage you to post your comments after each completed week so I can check in on your progress, provide feedback, and tailor my weekly Facebook Lives to questions and concerns that I see from you. I'll guarantee my personal attention to each student and therefore have an eye on the number of new inscriptions and, in case that's needed, temporarily close enrolment.
Still not sure about the course. Help please?
No problem. Let's figure this out together. Just share with me your questions, doubts, or concerns in an e-mail and we figure out together if this course is a fit for you, or not. Mail me, info@workinbalance.org.

"The workshop Life Designing with Yvonne was one of the best experiences I lived in 2017.

I wanted to change certain things in my life, but always felt paralysed because I had no idea where to start and everything seemed too complicated. The tools and techniques Yvonne presented, helped me to organize things, think straightforward and see that it is possible to adapt behaviours which help me change my life path."
