creating purpose and meaning for everyone at work

Born inside google & built on design thinking


About us

Work is changing. We're living longer, pursuing multiple careers and seeking meaning at work, so how might a company help its people design their lives around where they are headed while also building an engaged, creative and productive workforce? This is Life Design, the 2-day workshop for employees, born out of Google and now ready for organisations everywhere. 

Impact of Life Design at work


Deeper Engagement & Goal Clarity

With a sense of direction for where they want to be in the future, people at work become 40% more engaged in what they are hired to do now.
