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.

"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 2,5 years and 350+ 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"

"The training “Life Designing” with Yvonne helped me to identify my potential and reflect about my dreams and goals in life. To reach them, I need to proactively overcome limitations by turning my limiting beliefs into inspiring beliefs.
Yvonne encouraged and motivated us to change our mindset and design our life through action and changes in our behaviour."
- Gabriela Santos, Sociologist, Sao Paulo
"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."
